In December of 2010, while taking scenic photographs at the decommissioned Hamilton Airfield, in Novato, California, lead investigator, Iza Ellis, inadvertently snapped two pictures of an apparent UFO in the skies to the south of the main airfield. The UFO was not immediately noticed in the pictures, but discovered at a later date, during some photo filing.
The photographs were taken on an iPhone and are shown here at the original resolution and zoomed in for closer inspection. In the first image, you’ll notice a brightly illuminated object in the upper right area of the picture. In the second image, you’ll notice how the object is much dimmer, and appears to have moved further away. For reference, the city skyline in the distance is roughly 25 miles away. The clouds are at various elevations, anywhere from 1000 – 30,000 feet.

Enlarging the images reveals a reflective object in the sky. In the first enlargement, you’ll notice that the object has a luminosity much brighter than the surrounding area suggestive of a metal or other reflective material. The second enlargement reveals a distinct shape and structural evidence of an actual object. The elapsed time between each image suggests the object was moving to the south at a much faster rate than an airplane would be observed to travel.
The images, at the very least, leave us curious about this unidentified flying object. We invite you to draw your own conclusions.
If you have images you would like to share, of similar objects, please feel free to contact me, and I will be happy to post them.
