I was talking to Errol about that very thing today and one of the
possible scenarios is that it was photographed from an apartment
or house opposite the site. We won't know for sure untill more
details are available, but it seems to me that it was shot from a
"high" (elevated) vantage point. Did it give you that impression
as well? Like the cameraman/woman was standing on high ground
almost shooting down at the UFO. Just an impression.

The reason for that (may be) because it _is_ the real thing!
Let's wait and see what develops! <(bad photographic pun
intended, sorry. <G>)
