Duration:10 minutes
3 minute picture

Saw the object which looked much as a bright star about two hour before sun set. How ever the object keep changing directions. And after 15 or 20 minutes we lost it. Again at 10:00 pm we saw it again. This is when I took the picture. You can see a top of a tree and the milkeway in the background. The picture is about three minutes exspossure and starts on the left and heads to the right. I like how you can see the ufo starts slow with the thicker line of light as it pickes up speed the light line gets smaller then you see it as stoppes and changes dirctions. We didn't see all of this with the naked eye the ufo seemed to go the same speed all the time.
