Solid blue orb hovering in bushes & trees observing.Saw it after viewing photo of General Lee car the next day.

I have a interesting story to share. It was May 17 in 2008 & it was a beautiful spring day with mostly clear blue skies. My band was set to perform at an star studded private music event for charity. Members from Lynyrd Skynrd & Marshall Tucker were the most famous of performers. The event was hosted at the home of the musician who put this whole thing together.

Throughout the evening, every band that performed had a electrical problem with their sound & a few times the power completely shut off leaving the sound engineers puzzled. I was so afraid that when it was our time to perform that we too would have the same power problems. We performed around 4:00 p.m. &, surprisingly, throughout the entire hour we performed, we didn't have any electrical problems. We were so relieved & felt lucky.

After getting off stage & mingling with other guest,I decided I would take some photos of my own. It was now around 5:30 p.m. & the sun was closer to setting to the west. We had the "General Lee" car from the Dukes of Hazzard there & I took a few photos of different guests at the car.

Within the next 5 minutes, I remember thinking that a photo of the mountain side with the visible moon would be a good photo. The landscape of the property was beautiful. I took my photos with a Aiptek brand HD camera with a 6 mega pixel photo resolution. For 2008, this was decent.

The next day, I start to view all the photos I had taken. 2 photos struck me to be odd. The first photo was a photo of some guest standing by the General Lee car. I noticed in the distance, a solid blue orb in the bushes. You can zoom in & see it better. I'd say it was at least 100 ft away from us hovering there observing. There were no balloons. At that time I google searched blue orb & had only found 1 other & was not satisfied. Now there is more photos showing blue orbs & mostly from ufo reports. The photos before & after the blue orb showed nothing. The third photo after the blue orb, I see a black saucer looking craft right above the trees on the mountain top. You can zoom in & it doesn't look like a bird or hawk. It seems to have an antenna on top of it that is slightly tilted. But it's just not clear enough when zooming in for me to tell. I always hoped that someone with pro photo software could zoom in without distorting it to get a detailed view.

I've loaded these photos up at mufon also to share with others & to compare since more folks are getting similar photos. This site should let others see the photos submitted. This has intrigued me every since that day. I immediately connected this as to a ufo or paranormal experience. A lot of times people will say that around an ufo or ghostly paranormal event that they'll have electrical problems or an power outage & this came to my mind. I also see the light orbs that others report. Whatever these things are, they are spying on us. I feel no need in being contacted by Nuforc because the owner doesn't live at the property anymore. What you see in the photos is what you get.

Thanks for reading my story.
