Saw this in the night sky when I was on vacation in Maine. Do you know what it is?




Give up? No, it isn’t an Unidentified Flying Object, though I could probably have convinced you it was. It is a lantern, one of those disposable paper ones that people send off into the night sky over the ocean.

I should have been able to take a better picture, so that the shape was obvious, but I was working with a new camera and had never tried taking a nighttime picture before. I’ll be better at it once I take the time to read the manual.

Still, I thought it was an interesting effect, even if it wasn’t what I was trying for. Do you agree?
