My 12-year-old grandson and I were walking along the street that runs in back of his house in Homer City, Pennsylvania, at about 8:00 on the evening of August 19, 2016. I had my camera with me, a Canon PowerShot digital ("point and shoot") and was taking photos of the sunset. On our way, I decided to take a black and white photo of the church steeple on top of the Hope Evangelical Lutheran Church. I did not see anything other than the steeple as I carefully focused my camera and took the picture. When I got home later that evening, and looked at the photos I had taken, I noticed this unidentified object in the sky to the right of the church steeple. The evening was mostly clear, and there was little or no wind. I had not observed anything unusual in the sky prior to snapping the picture. What is somewhat strange about all of this, is that the previous evening, August 18, I had been researching UFO sightings reported in the Youngstown, Ohio area. (That is where I was born and raised.) I was particularly interested in an encounter which occurred in February of 1994. This encounter was well-documented. It fascinated me because of the location where the UFO was first seen, on Sampson Drive, which is quite near where I originally lived. It just seems weird that I had an unidentified object show up in a photo I took, the night after I had been researching UFO's on my computer.
