                                                Here is a photograph that was E-Mail to me a few days ago, of an object floating above an area in Rome. The person who took the picture gave the following details regarding the photograph:

"I am developing a website and was taking background pictures (the site is romenewyork.net) of Rome. I was using a simple handheld digital and didn't see anything unusual until I looked at the picture when I got home.
Rome, New York Tuesday Feb19 at about 2:50 pm....(southwestern sky [i think])
there is clearly a ufo in the sky. it is not a plane.
I have the image still in the camera, but won't keep it for long...
I have made copies to keep untouched and I made copies to work with (enhance). I cannot enhance it to see what it is, but definitely enough to see that it IS a UFO"

All comments and poll votes welcome.

and also thankyou very much to J. Lombardo for sending this picture into us.

                     I think it looks more like one of the space shuttles,  by the shape of it.   Although it seems to be a grey color,  like a blimp.   ???    It sure is hard to make out - it's so far away.

The distance and/or clarity makes it hard to see. However, since the term 'aircraft' covers planes, balloons, gliders, helicopters...etc., that's my vote. As for what I think, I really can't tell...it appears to be too grey to be Superman...but you never know...

looks like a blimp to me, although it is hard to see, even enlarged.

We're not talking Rome as in Italy are we?  Otherwise, I would say that the person who submitted the photo is insulting our intelligence.
Whether in Rome or the US (?) I don't think it's anything Xtraordinary

The object in the photo is by definition a UFO because we cannot say with any certainity what it is.
However I voted aircraft.

Yep, I agree with Druss on this one.   :sk  It's to far away to make any valid conclusions, so an aircraft is the obvious guess.   :sc

Gizzie, it says it's Rome, New York. Therefore i assume there is a town in New York state called Rome - It wouldn't surprise me as there are a whole load of re-used town names in the States.

                                                  I was just wondering why Mr.Lombardo is so sure that it is not a plane?
I would have thought that it is most likley to be a plane, although as has been mentioned, its so far away as to be completley sure as to what it is.

                                                  Well my goodness, it's so far away, it could be a bird for all we know, or even better, a little bug or a speck on the camera.  I don't know, but it's awefully far away.   tongue.gif
