In the photo there are two samples of the same image on each photo. The top left is the original and the close up is about 400% zoom. Both are clear and beautiful.
As we were leaving Tombstone we stopped at Boot Hill cemetery just at the north end of town. After walking through the cemetery my wife and I were about to get into the car. I looked out over the road (HWY 80) toward the west to take in the scenery out over the desert. That's when I noticed something just hanging there maybe a mile or 1.5 miles high and about 3 miles total distance. It hovered and did not appear to move. It was a little difficult to see with the Sun facing me at about 2 o'clock with the object to the left at 9 or 10 o'clock. At first I considered it could be a hot air balloon but I quickly ruled that out. I thought the sun could be reflecting off of something but that would mean there had to be something there to reflect off of.
With the naked eye I could see the dark area on the left and the bright white vertical boomerang shape on the right. I grabbed my camera and took about four pictures, the one I posted is the best image. These images were able to provide much more detail than I could see otherwise.
My wife also could see the object as well. With no nearby roads leading out to the object and not knowing what it was we decided to leave after watching it for about ten minutes. During that time it did not appear to move, if anything it got a little closer.
thesun - A UFO hovers over rooftops - leaving locals believing aliens travelled across the universe to check out their lives in Rotherham.
Baffled residents helplessly SHOUTED at the triangular craft as it crept above the South Yorkshire town.
Eerily it looks just like an object spotted over Belgium in 1990 - which so spooked authorities that F-16 fighter jets were scrambled to intercept it.
Nayab Ahmed, 19 - whose pal Anny Cummings, 18, took the snap - said: "It moved really slowly but occasionally it'd shudder. It was completely silent."
Another witness said: "I don't believe in aliens, but what else could it be?"
Nick Pope, ex-head of the Ministry of Defence's UFO unit, said: "Some might suspect secret prototype aircraft and drones, but we test such craft in restricted military areas, not built-up places."
NOTE: after closer inspection, this does not appear to be a triangle shaped craft....any guesses? Lon
