latitude 32.47.825'N longitude 079.46.724'W It was almost 4am and I was leaving for a long weekend before noon, so I emailed you the photo and a very short note prior to my departure. I just returned home last night and am now filing a siting report.

I was outside on our second story porch having a cigarette. Looking northeast, fairly high in the sky, I was distracted by quick movements of an object lower in the sky. I tend to have my camera always nearby, but since I was packing for a trip, I happened to have it, extra battaries, a memory card, etc. in a case in the pocket of my robe! I quickly pulled it out, turned it on, held it up facing the area in the sky where I had detected movement, took a flash picture, and got the enclosed image. The image I previously emailed you (the night of the event), is the exact same image zoomed and cropped.
