    I find the billboard “Xnfinity/U-verse” ironic, considering.

    But, I’d say it’s a flying bug close to the car. Could also be something kicked up by traffic.

    If a window smudge, it would have been in more than one picture. 4 pics taken in succession, it only appeared on one.

    Some items missing that would help:
    1) Was the car moving while the pictures were being shot, and at what speed?
    2) Did the witness see the object or only notice in the picture, later?
    3) Are they in the opposite lane going the opposite direction of the other cars shown or going the same direction?

    “I noticed a double rainbow in the sky,” the witness stated. “I got out my Smartphone to photograph the rainbow and took four pictures in succession.”
    “On the fourth photograph I captured what appears to be a UFO flying really fast next to the rainbow. As quickly as it appeared, it was gone.”

    A UFO was sighted a day later in New York and two places in the United Kingdom. How could reports of that, two days in a row, by different people be a prank?
