UFO sphere or meteorological phenomenon?

    http://ufopicturesphotos.blogspot.com/2011/09/stationary-ufo-sphere-photographed.html" [Broken], has been looking on some of the pictures, but no solid conclusion on what it was has been done so far. There is an animation on the site made by 4 pictures, that shows the object is stationary while the clouds passing by ahead and behind, check it out...

    Sun halo adorned with cigar-shaped UFO

    Sun halo adorned with cigar-shaped UFO - A cigar-shaped UFO was photographed while taking photos of a sun halo over Denmark back in October 9th 2009. Must say it´s the best UFO photo I have taken so far, so check it out: Sun halo adorned with cigar-shaped UFO

    I have taken thousands of photos the last 2-3 years and on some of them, strange objects appears. I would love to hear what you have to say about this one, thanks

    You're calling that tiny smudge of light a UFO? That's pretty flimsy.

    See how it has a dark trail behind it and it is bright on the bright part of the cloud and dark on the dark area of the cloud? Condensation trails vary when passing through varied air conditions.

    Your username is "UFOphotos." Do you try to take photos of things you can't identify? Or do you simply take thousands of photos and inspect them for anomalies?

    Interested in your method.

    Brian. It's a cloud. That's the best explanation. You said that a climatologist name John Cappelen looked at it? I copied his quote from the site you linked to. You say "[he] has been looking on some of the pictures, but no solid conclusion" so far? I think Mr. Cappelen disagrees. He seems to consider the matter closed.

    Well, I could easely accept the explanation, that it was a meteorological phenomenon, but I can´t see how John Cappelen´s opinion and meaning about something, suddenly becomes scientific fact. Scientific facts are presented by solid evidence, not opinions...

    Thanks for reply

    why is it that automatic default assumption for any unexplained blob on a photo is an alien spacecraft?

    A bit of pre-cognition?
