UFO Photographed over Barstow, California

Barstow, California - 05-24-11

My girlfriend and I were staying in a Hotel in Barstow overnight as we made our way along Route 66 to Needles.

We were in the back of the parking lot of the hotel watching the sunset and talking when I noticed this dark, cigar- shaped object sitting motionless in the sky.

Fortunately I had a camera with me and the lens was a 70-200 mm zoom that allowed me to look at the object closer. I also shot a few frames of the object. At first the object was pretty large, but seemed to be slowing getting smaller.

I did shoot 3 frames of the object over a 1-2 min period and you can see the object has changed shape in a short length of time.(only one photograph shown below)

Additionally I noticed that there seemed to be many small objects directly above the large object. These smaller objects seemed to be moving in a excited state like boiling water.

They are very faint and are very close to the primary object. You can just make them out in the enlarged sections I have pasted on the main photo. Very interesting to watch them. I just wish I had shot more photos.

My girlfriend and I did observe the object slowly dissipate to nothing, but it did keep the general shape of a cigar to the end. Later I got to thinking about the object and the proximity of the object to Edwards AFB in California.

I guess I have triangulated the possible position of the object based on my location and the sunset and the position of the object in relation to the sunset.

Needless to say this observation contributed greatly to our the adventure of traveling in the desert on Rt 66.

Camera - Canon EOS 5D Mark II
