I was taking pictures of the solar eclipse ... I was having trouble with the tiny point-n-shoot camera I was using ... my tired old Canon had died rather spectacularly early in the day. (sniff, snort, bwwwaaaahhhh!!!)
But even though the pictures were coming out blurry, I still kept snapping away, hoping against hope that at least one of them would be okay.
Little did I realize I had caught something else on one of my shots ...
A cigar shaped streak across the frame!
It wasn't something on the lens - all of the pictures before and after were clear!
It wasn't a bird - several of the shots had birds (and you could TELL they were birds!)
So what was it?
I'll let YOU decide for yourself!!!
