Is this a UFO?

As defined by wikipedia “an unidentified flying object, or UFO, in its most general definition, is any apparent anomaly in the sky that is not identifiable as a known object or phenomenon.” Given that, I have something that I’m calling a UFO.

It was on December 27, 2014, from the cruise ship looking towards the shores as we arrived in Rangoon, Myanmar. Steve and I had gone to the promenade deck to see what the new view was like, and we were snapping photos of the rice fields, etc. I took the camera and was taking shots of the two people on shore carrying stuff on their heads, but it wasn’t until later when we were looking over the photos that we noticed the thing in the sky above the mountains.


The date and time stamp on the photos is only about a second between each, and even though we were on a moving ship, we weren’t moving that fast.

Use the people and the little house as a frame of reference, and you can see that the spot I captured was moving pretty fast. Maybe it’s a bug, maybe something else? In any case, check it out and decide for yourself.

The date and time from the camera is set still to our Canadian timezone but look at the time between the photos in seconds.
