Full Description of event/sighting: I'm an amateur photographer. I was at an elevated area that over looks the town to take some scenes of the snow on the rooftops. Normally I would use a tripod, but this day I'd forgotten to bring it. I took a wide shot looking south east. I then repeated the same shot 16 seconds later as I felt that I hadn't aligned the horizon correctly. I didn't notice anything at the time, but when I got home and uploaded the images I noticed a dark shape on one frame. I shoot digital and my normal procedure is to open the image to full size to remove dust spots etc. But this dark shape was definitely not a dust spot. It wasn't on the preceding frame shot 34 seconds earlier or the later frame. I shot 28 images that day and it's only on 1. Once the object is enlarged you can see how it reflects the light. The sun was low in the sky, behind light cloud to the right of the image. The object is lighter on the top and right and shaded on the left and bottom, consistent with the bright part of the sky. It's definitely in the landscape, not on the lens or any other part of the camera. It's also definitely not a bird. There are no hard edges. I've photographed birds before and it looks nothing like that. It's interesting that an aircraft operated by Romanian airline Carpatair landed at the local airport only about 5-10 minutes later, flying right through where the object had been. I would like to know if the air crew or ground controllers saw anything. I'm not saying it was a spaceship, but it's definitely unidentified and unexplainable.

Thank you to the person for sending in the report. I will see if I can have the fellow send along the photo to be looked at.
