A documentary photographer in Boston is curious about a “quick flying object” that crossed his screen about 5:20 p.m. on July 17, 2012, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
“I was filming a documentary in Boston and I shot a church,” the witness stated. “When reviewing the footage later, I noticed a quick flying object shooting past the screen at 0:03.”
The video can be downloaded here. The image on this page is a still frame taken from the video. Photographers commonly catch birds or bats or bugs that are not seen at the time something is photographed, but the image can look unusual when reviewing photography later at your computer.
The witness is unsure what the object is.
“Very strange and it does not seem to be a camera error.”
