Occurred: 1998-04-12 17:00 Local
Reported: 1998-05-11 00:00 Pacific
Duration: Unknown

Location: Waldorf, MD, USA

Shape: Oval
Characteristics: Aura or haze around object

Object appeared in a photograph that was taken Easter Sunday 1998. None of the 5 persons present during the actual photographing remember seeing the object. It was not known untill the film was developed a few days later.

Myself and a group of friends were shooting off model rockets in the parking lot of West Lake High School here in Waldorf Maryland around 17:00 Easter Sunday 1998. I snapped this photo of my nextdoor neighbor prepairing another rocket for launch, and when the photo came back from CVS, the object in the upper right hand courner was present. It appears to be roughly oval in shape with what might be a triangular construction on top. The triangular region seems to be highly reflective, while the lower oval portion of the overall object is dark and featureless. I have ruled out the possibility of lens contamination, it only appears on the one frame, and there were no rockets in the air at the time, and no other persons in the area. Noone from the group remembers seeing anything, and we were all suprised by the photo.
