I was able to capture an UFO using still photography

Enjoying a day off from work, I hiked high into the hills above San Marcos, CA to take some informal Nature Photography. From a hilltop of approx 1300 ft alt. I observed to the east, a contrail that was an inturruped stream of "Puffs", I am an aircraft fan, and having seen the same contrail in preceeding weeks, photographed with my disposable camera, what I deduced was an experimental aircrafts trail. When the photographs were developed, I was suprised to see what appeared to be a winged flying pole. It did not appear to be connected to the contrail I had observed. I showed the photo to some at my workplace on 10/29. They told me the same object had been seen on a news story on local channell 8 news on 10/28. It appears to be an identical object.
