Hello, I know this might be strange or just my imagination, but I think I have a weather radar image of a UFO. I race off road dirt bikes and was checking the weather report for the Madison, Florida area on March 7, 2008, at 4:40 pm ET. I was looking to see if the area was going to get some rain; since we as a whole hate it when a race is dusty. I found this radar image that one can find on www.weather .com. I put the map "in motion" and there was a section of movement that had this “straight line”, in like two or three frames.

It caught my eye and I was like what the heck was that, so I paused the motion and advanced it frame by frame till the image came up. I say a straight line cause it was "more straight than a cloud clearing of sorts," and low and behold there is this line that looks as if something flew through the cloud and made a trail. The end of the trail is round and looks as if the clouds move away from the end in uniform distance. I first thought that it must be a jet fighter or something coming out of the military base, that I think is up there, but then I start to think about the scale of which the radar image is covering.

It is this thought that makes me wonder to myself what I have I have a picture of, I mean the radar image is in the middle of the slider scale which scans in and out from I guess ; city view all the out to multiple counties. I have the scale in the middle when I printed the image. I have shown it to friends and no one has a clue as to what it might be.

I know weather can take on any form and it can take shapes that make us as people go huh, but this image is, in my opinion not a clearing of natural origin, but more of a picture of a wake so to speak. I would be happy to email a picture of it if can get it to scan clearly.

Well in conclusion, it could be said that it is an airplane, but some one would have to prove to me the scale of the radar image is that small and show me other weather radar pictures of airplanes that have been imaged and recorded. I feel for know that this is an unidentifiable flying object that has been picked up on a weather radar loop swing.

Other questions that cross my mind are 1) how fast does a radar loop move and how many frames does it take to make one loop swing. This entire image lasted for three frames at most, before it was not visible in the radar loop "in motion."

Thanks and get back to me via my email if you would like to see the printed out color copy of the image
