This is the question that I am asking after I received 2 photographs taken 5:15 in the morning on Thursday September 13th 2012. The 2 photographs I have are in my opinion stunning images of something unexplained flying by.
The report received with the photographs is as follows,
This is a documentation from Kurt R and Paula from Black Canyon City,AZ. – at 5:15am it was a clear morning no wind was blowing it started out like a white cloud and then swirled into color and then disappeared without a trace. It had red around it and something unknown in the middle.
Above and below the object, there is a cylindrical almost linear shaft of light. The light appears to be bright enough to illuminate the forest below. Space.com reports on the incident as being a “Juno Rocket test” from the White Sand’s Missile range located in New Mexico. They go on to state that what is depicted in other images they evaluated, that the contrail of the missile at high altitude will develop ice crystals that will reflect the sunlight causing the glowing rainbow effect. I disagree with the so called official explanation as the glowing object in the photographs that were sent to me are much to low for the ice crystal theory to hold up. I believe strongly that what was seen was by definition a UFO.
This sighting in my opinion is similar to the Yosemite UFO sighting that depicted a craft such as this with a long luminous trail. Other areas of the world have had these objects I will detail them later in the article.
