Photo Of Small Object In The Sky On Christmas Morning 2008; Plane or UFO?

This is not a first hand viewing but rather a first hand photo so it may be an aircraft.

It was about 11am on Christmas Day 25 December 2008, outside a small town Swaffham in Norfolk, United Kingdom.

I am submitting this because there should not have been much flying around at 11am on Christmas Morning.

My wife and I stopped the car to show our son the pigs in Norfolk.

My wife took 2 pictures with maybe a 30 second interval between them no more than that. The camera was a simple disposable camera you buy at the supermarket.

I have attached both pictures. I have smudged my boys face as I don’t like putting him on the internet.

The first picture shows no object in the sky.

Then she wound the camera up to the next frame and took a step back. Then she took the next picture.

The second picture shows a small object in the sky at the centre of the picture.

I noticed this when we were looking at the prints.

We also had a copy on CD so I looked at it on the computer. It looks slightly strange but could also be a military aircraft.

There are two US Airforce bases about 14 miles away. RAF Lakenheath and RAF Mildenhall so it could be a fighter or something like that but I guess it would be unlikely at it was Christmas morning.

Thank You
