|Pictures of saucer taken on Kodachrome film, negatives available, 4 red lines from each axis clearly observable.
While on the observation deck of a river cruise ship as we passed through one of the gorges approaching the 3 gorges dam on the Yangtze River I observed what appeared to be a saucer shaped object hovering over the top of the gorge we were passing. There was a light rain and I was the only one on the deck. I took two pictures of the object on Kodachrome film. I went inside for about 5 minutes, and returned to the deck for another 5 minutes, and the object was in place. After drying out for about ten minutes I returned and the “saucer” was gone. After I returned home I had the film developed an printed (Costco). Examining the pictures the object was very clear on one print. Under magnification the “saucer shaped thing” had a red line extending from each of its four axis. I still have the print and the negative (as part of a strip). I have gone to several sites, and there was no interest.
