2 objects seen outside the La Porte County Public Library with pictures

While having a cigarette and taking pictures of the sky (because of many previous u.f.o. sightings) outside the LaPorte County Public Library I was watching a jet travel from the southeast to a northwest direction when a white cigar shaped object buzzed right past the jet going in the opposite direction.

I started taking pictures of the object as fast as I could using my Kodak easy share m530 camera. I then noticed another object of the same shape, color, and velocity going from the northwest to the southeast direction.

Both objects were traveling faster than the jet.

((NUFORC Note: This is the first of seven reports we have received from this source. He has been very generous in sharing 23 e-messages, with 32 attached photographs of objects he has captured with a camera. Most of the objects he did not witness, at the time the photos were taken, but rather later, as he inspected the photos. NUFORC has looked at all of the photos, and although we cannot identify all of the anomalous objects captured photographically, but most of the objects we believe are birds. In most of those cases, we are even able to determine the type of bird involved, and its position in flight. We believe that none of the photos is of a genuine UFO. We, nevertheless, express our gratitude to the source for his having shared the information with our Center, who has had to use a computer at a public library, in order to submit the information to NUFORC!
