Unexplained objects photographed over Mount Sentinel in Montana.My wife and I are university students in Montana. It was an early Monday evening,July 15, 2002. The temprature had been in the low 90s all day. At approximately 19:40 hours, a brief summer thunder shower passed over our area. The heavy rain and thunder and lightening lasted about 15 minutes. At 19:55 hours the weather eased, and my wife resumed doing the laundry, at the laundry room across the parking lot from our apartment building. When she stepped outside, she looked to the east, and saw a double rainbow spanning Mount Sentinel, which is almost directly behind our building. She quickly ran inside, and grabbed her Sony Mavica digital camera. She then returned to the parking lot to photograph the double rainbow. She took approximately 24 pictures. On 4 of the 24 photos, we noticed what appear to be several fireball looking objects in the sky. My wife did not notice the objects in the sky while she was taking the photos. The objects were all very similar in shape, although sizes of the objects varied (due to distance?). Photos are available upon request.
