David McCune just wants to know what's in the digital photograph that he shot while flying at 37,000 feet over the southern region of the country on a hot July afternoon.

|David McCune holds up a photo he took while flying at 37,000 feet from Atlanta to Kansas City, Mo. When he got home he found that one of the photos he took with his 10 mega-pixel camera had a UFO in the middle of the frame.
He can't help but wonder if it's a UFO. No matter how much skepticism he provokes
Even Peter Davenport, the director of the National UFO Reporting Center in Washington state, has doubts.
Here on this insignificant spinning ball we call Earth, human beings exist almost completely unaware of the mysteries secluded and locked away in the near infinite galaxies beyond our atmosphere.
But every once in a while, someone looks up to the heavens and makes a discovery.
While traveling north on Roosevelt Avenue near Notre Dame High School, Burlington resident Keith Jacobs glanced to the sky at exactly 6:07 a.m. Monday and spotted a UFO, he said.
Jacobs was on his way to Perkins Restaurant for a morning coffee when, out of the corner of his eye, he spotted a brilliant blue light southeast of his location.

In 1976, for several weeks, a light followed a school bus on its regular route to Whitehorse from Lake Laberge.
The bus driver saw it. So did her 10-year-old daughter and all the other kids on the bus.
It made her nervous.
She asked for a new route, and transferred to Carcross.
So did the light.
And it was closer.
It would stop and shoot across the sky.
Then, one afternoon just before Christmas, after all the children had been dropped off, something really weird happened.
A crowd of 100 stunned stargazers brought a town centre to a standstill when five mysterious UFOs were spotted hovering in the sky.
|Crowds gathered to gawp at the strange lights that hovered silently over Stratford for 30 minutes.
Drinkers spilled out of pubs, motorists stopped to gawp and camera phones were aimed upwards as the five orbs, in a seeming formation, hovered above Stratford-Upon-Avon for half an hour.
The unidentified flying objects lit up the otherwise clear night sky above Shakespeare's birthplace in Warwickshire on Saturday.
Although Air Traffic Control reported no unusual activity, some witnesses were convinced they were witnessing an extra-terrestrial spectacle.
The strongest evidence so far that some crop circles are not man made was presented to a choice gathering at the Coronation Hall in Alton Barnes yesterday.
|Massive pattern of circles in East Field, Alton Priors, Wiltshire, U. K. wheat, estimated to cover 96,600 square feet, or 2.25 acres, with more than 95 circles spread across 1,033 feet and 490 feet wide.
Norwegian film maker Terje Toftenes presented the DVD he has made of the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the creation of a massive crop formation in East Field, Alton Barnes, on July 7.
Most formations are discovered the morning after and some have even been created in fields with observers sitting on overlooking hills.
There is probably no one in Buryatia, who hasn't heard about the mysterious lake Sobolkho, which has a reputation of "fear's residence". This may seem unbelievable but the precise depth of the lake is still unknown, besides, the area surrounding the lake is infamous for the facts of people and domestic animals' disappearance. They all are considered drowned although no body has ever been got from the bottom of the lake; moreover, animals drowned there were sometimes found in other waters and ponds. Local witnesses claim that there is also bright pink light which appears over the lake every night and is thought of as souls of the drowned people and animals asking for help to find peace in sepulchral life.
The natives have deemed the lake as bewitched for a long time and tried to propitiate its dwellers, but scientists from the Russian Academy of Sciences (the RAS) stick to the opinion that Sobolkho is a classic example of natural geopathogenic zone, linked with peculiar structure of Earth crust on this territory.
Four thousand years ago the local dwellers suddenly left the town Arkaim located in the south of the present Chelyabinsk Region and burnt the empty settlement. The town had a circular structure coordinated with the stars order. Many believe in mystical characteristics of the area and link it with the legends of ancient Siberia and the Urals. Specialists of the monitoring station of anomalies' research in the Urals claim that the specialized national park-museum Arkaim is a vast anomalous zone.
Arkaim was found by an archaeological expedition of the State University of Chelyabinsk in 1987. Geo physic methods let the scientists come to the conclusion that the ancient settlement located on that territory consisted of 60 buildings (35 in the inner circle of the town, and 25 in the outer circle). By the moment archaeologists have carefully researched 29 buildings. Although the settlement is not so well-known as Stonehenge it is highly unique and has even more complex organization. Modern astronomers were surprised by the diversification, complexity, and accuracy of the built "project", taking into account the fact that there had not been found traces of any earlier and simpler constructions in that area.
Extra-terrestrial movement in South Canterbury skies need no longer go untold.
The UFO Focus New Zealand Research Network (UFOCUS NZ) has developed a web-based formal reporting system for any sightings of unidentified flying objects in the country.
The system should attract plenty of interest in South Canterbury as at the centre of their latest investigations is a sighting near Mount Peel.
Hamilton Air Traffic Controller and UFOCUS NZ investigator Graeme Opie said the sighting was reported by a dairy farmer bringing his cows in for milking at a property near Hinds about 7.15pm on Friday March 30.
The lights, which were seen towards Mount Peel, were making sudden movements which meant it could not have been a plane or helicopter, he said.
The mystery surrounding an unidentified flying object off the Central Coast continues after a woman captured a fuzzy picture of it on her digital camera.
Katie Elvins, of Umina Beach, said she noticed the object while she was waiting for a bus.
''My camera is small enough to fit in my handbag so I always have it on me,'' she said.
''I was just looking in that direction and noticed it in the sky.''
She said she didn't tell her friends or family about the incident and forgot about the photos.
That was until she read an article in the Express Advocate a week later about a former air traffic controller's sighting of a mysterious object which prompted her to have the pictures printed.
A Former air traffic controller wants to know what the strange object is he has been seeing flying over Terrigal.
Lindsay Carter, of Terrigal, said he was reluctant to speak out but had become so frustrated at not being able to identify it he has called on the public to provide an answer.
''If someone can tell me it's the 2.30pm (passenger flight) from Brisbane then I would be happy,'' he said.
But after three years with the British Air Force as an air traffic controller and a lifetime interest in planes, Mr Carter, 63, said he was confident at being able to identify almost every kind military or commercial aircraft.
''This is different-looking enough for anyone to find it strange,'' he said.
