UFO swarm appears to be watching Delta Heavy launch.

I had been waiting for the Delta Heavy launch and wanted to take some photos of it. It was late. When I saw it streaking across the sky, I started snapping photos. I couldn't see much in my video lens on the camera because of reflections. So I didn't know if I was getting it. But I kept snapping anyway. Finally I was able see the contrail in my camera. I got some pretty good photos of the contrail. I was certainly surprised to see the missile go completely across the sky because I wanted to take some photos of the separations of the tanks.

Well, to make a long story short (too late now), I came to my apartment which was right across the street from where I was snapping the pictures. I hooked up the camera to the computer and began looking at the photos I got. I noticed nothing but sky on several initial photos. But when I looked at this one my jaw dropped. I saw these 9 very clear dots of light that appeared to be near the path of the rocket.

I checked the photos after that one and the dots didn't appear.

I think I may have inadvertently photographed a swarm of UFOs watching the launch.


Witness provides photo, which shows small whie objects against a blue sky. We are unable to determine whether the objects might be birds in flight, but it is a possibility, we believe. PD
