If I had to guess, I'd say it's an imperial starship.

Try to aggressive pull the shadows and see if you can get anything from them. I though plane but it doesn't look quite right and an insect should be much blurrier. Maybe there is something to the Star Destroyer theory.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

"Shot on the top floor"--Did the building have something on the roof that might get in the way? Flagpole, antennas, support for satellite dish?

roof of a high hotel in Paris, no telephone poles in site, the images from the same spot before and after as above do not have anything. No bugs up there that night that I could feel/see so not sure if it would be a bug

If it was a telephone pole that high in the sky and only visable for a few seconds..that would be as worrisome as aliens ay?

Maybe just a plane at a funky angle

Unmoored kite? Wing and strut of small plane? Shadow of satellite in Earth orbit?
