|Unknown object discovered in digital photo image taken of coastal seashore at vicinity of Seal Rock, Oregon.
On the Thursday afternoon of November 1, 2007, I had met with a friend for lunch in Waldport, Oregon. Having originally planned on having the whole afternoon together, our lunch visit had to be cut short due to an unexpected appointment involving my friend.
Because I live in Toledo, Oregon, I decided to take advantage of the unseasonable sunny weather that afternoon by stopping along the way home to take some scenic pictures. Being semi-retired and living on the scenic Central Oregon Coast, I have enjoyed taking pictures as one of my favorite pastimes. I stopped at the Seal Rock area around 2:00 pm.
Having a digital camera, I am able to take many pictures and then sort through them at home on my PC to choose my best shots. It wasn’t until after I downloaded my pictures onto my PC that I discovered that one of my pictures had an “odd” object in the picture. When first trying to zoom in on the object in the image, I thought that the “odd object” was possibly two seagulls that were casting an unusual or “odd” appearance.
However, as I zoomed in on the objects in the image, I felt that the unusual object was not simply seagulls as I had first thought. I instead felt that I had unknowingly taken a picture of some object. I also realized that I had not seen nor heard anything unusual at the time that I was taking the pictures. Of course, being right down on the beach, it was the sounds of the pounding wave action that was heard most.
Although I have been somewhat hesitant about submitting this report and my photo image to the National UFO Reporting Center, I have decided that I must try to find out just what the object really is.
Along with this report submittal, I am also emailing the image to the National UFO Reporting Center. I am hoping that the UFO Reporting Center might be able to determine the most likely explanation for the object that appears in that one picture.
