Possible U.F.O. captured in photo, while out by the river with my dog, at dusk, snapping some "Moon Rise" pic's w/digital camera.

I'm a 45 year(young)woman, living in a rural community 12 miles N.E.of Payson Az.

While taking my dog out for a romp at nearby river, decided to get out my digital camera and take some pic's. The sun had just gone down behind the mountain,and the moon was coming up at same time time. Started snapping pic's of the moon.. until it got too dark. Did not notice anything unusual while there,In fact,i was the only one in the area,a nice quiet time of evening. Also no air traffic that i saw while there either. When dark,drove back to our cabin to make dinner ect. Had not looked at pic's i'd taken,until i loaded them to my c.p.u.3-4 day's later. While viewing my pic's, I then noticed an object in only one of the "Moon" shot's i'd taken. Not a plane, or a bird ?? Look's to be disk shaped, the moon light is reflecting off the side while casting a shadow on the other side. Also, Notice the angle..?? U.F.O.??? I don't know , What do you think?? Taking pic's of moon comming up ,down @ the Water Wheel Campground..In Payson, Ariz. on Tues. 9-13-05. Used cheap 1.3 mega pixel Samsung camera. Sent 3- pic's...(1) #0023 taken @time:6:53:32pm. , (2) #0024 (The Pic. With U.F.O. to the Right of the Moon) Time: 6:53:46pm, and (3) #0025 Taken: 6:53:58pm. These are the Original Images as downloaded from my camera. Also will send The IRFANVIEW extended file info. for the image w/ u.f.o. (Imag0024 from above) which show's camera setting's ect.

((NUFORC Note: We received a photo, but we have no idea what the blurry object to the right of the Moon is. It could be a contrail, a bird, or some other object of terrestrial origin. PD))
