Hi guys!

The only flying bugs that I have seen moving as fast as 60 MPH
were on the windshield of my car while I was driving on the

The best explanation is still an object not too small or too big
but was something in between such as a bird. As seen through my
eyes and interpreted by my mind, the dome of what looks to some
to be a classic flying saucer is more like the wing of a bird.
The shadows and non-uniform blurring can also be better
explained by a non-symetrical object like a bird that could have
been oriented in a number of possible ways in the sky when the
camera captured it in flight on film.

If the object was very much larger, it would be moving so fast
that we would still have to explain why a sonic boom was not

Of course, if the picture was taken through the windshield of a
car (possible since the photographer took the picture from the
middle of the road and not the side of the road as one would
expect from a pedestrian), the object could still turn out to be
a bug - a squashed one!
