  Triangle over Melbourne?

Triangle over Melbourne?
Image credit: Tim.C Melbourne

Uploader comment: Hey guys, This was taken on my Olympus u790SW a few years ago at a beer garden in Melbourne, Au, before 1:30AM(as that is when the place closes). I edited the original file in paint, enlarging the inset images by 500% & 1000%, and I assume the image will be scaled down when I upload it - let me know if there's a better way to do this When I noticed this, one of my mates, who is in the photo, claimed to have doctored it after it was taken and wrote over the original photo on the XD card, however I'm pretty certain he never had the camera before I transferred the files to my computer, and he didn't have access to my PC before I brought it up, and also he is pretty useless with computers in general, so kudos to him if he really did. He is stubborn and doesn't think he believes in life anywhere else in the Universe, or UFO's either so I don't know why he would have claimed to do this... The people in the photo didn't want me to upload the photo, or show anyone, as they didn't want to be associated with it. I have always been interested in this kind of thing so since joining UM I decided to upload it with their faces censored as I think it's a pretty cool photo and wanted to share. Although I would love for this to be a real 'Triangle' UFO, which I think it resembles, I know there are still plenty of possible explanations eg. conveniently positioned water droplets on the lens catching the light of the street light, or a group of stars that have somehow been exposed longer during the capture of the photo... Anyway, let me know what you think!

Oh great you can't even see the lights in the original photo. I'll cut that corner from the original image and upload it...

Im no photographic expert but I wonder if the 'ufo' is somehow related to the actual lights in the background. The group of lights in the upper left hand corner do resemble, in a way, the ufo. Some kind of lense flare perhaps? btw, looks like a fun night

these objects are real, I have seen with my eyes only one that was much bigger and with more lights but always of triangular shape

Geez!!if you want tons of these triangle shaped UFO i will post you hundreds, planes fly at this altitude every 15 minutes from Montreal airport over my house and with their lights on they look just like this, ive seen some look even weirder especially with their blinding landing lights on.....they have lights that they turn on only in some situations like the proximity of other aircraft, the strange shapes of the light is due to many factor like the lens of the camera, distance and even air polution....

Yes plenty of local airports as well as 2 international airports in the area also. A plane is one of the more likely explanations.
