    Yet another blurry photo of something that could be anything. Until the UFO phenomenon advances beyond this kind of thing it will continue to be met with ridicule by Governments and the general public. Real evidence is what is needed, not more blurry pictures.

    Looks like the same boomerang type craft that Michael Shratt has identified as being military industrial complex.
