The reporting witness was outside on the beach with a girlfriend when the object was first seen on June 4, 2016.

“We observed a dark UFO emerge from a cloud over the harbor,” the witness stated.“We had been commenting on the oddness of the long, thin, spirally dense cloud on a clear day.”

  4. The insect idea was considered. Small projections on the front are are visible as is a shadow over the object that ckuld be flapping wings. Four facts debunk this fly theory. Actually five. 1, the arc of travel of any flying wings besides a butterfly are greater in arc than this shadowy area. Also the ‘insect’ lacks a thorax section present on all insects. Third, the chances of a fly being in that pne spot in the photo is about one in a thousand, similar to winning a thousand dollars on a scratch off ticket given the overall area of the photo and yhe thinness of the cloud, which is a weird cloud shaped like the bones of an animals spine as are the other nearbybclouds which if you investigqte ufos regulary these shapes show up even in space. Fourth, the cloud is altered in several ways aroundvthe objectvas indicated bycintradt density. Finally and most telling, is a matter of focal depth. This camera is focused, as all cameras do, on aain area of view, in this case the far distance of the clouds. Even the patrol boat in the ocean is blurrier. Therefore, the object is in the general depth of focus as the distant cloud. A fly a few inches forward of the witness would be much more out of focus, and would be fluing very high for a tetrestial insect (no pun intended). As an added fact i will throw in, i happen to thevshutter speed of the photo. This uniquevsmartlhpne from nokia optics uses a low lught nikkor glass lens and uses ultra fast comluter controlled shutter speeds (virtual shutter) and was clocked close to one hundred thousandth of acsecond. Even a flues wings or an airplane propellor wwould be frozen at this speed, not lost in a blur of speed. Like it or not, this appears to be a black object w horn like appendages emerging or reyreating into a very odd cloud.
