Green UFO Photographed

Hello Brian,
I'm writing today to share a recent photograph.
This green UFO was photographed over downtown Vancouver on Monday March 14, 2005. Although there had been numerous sightings in the Pacific Northwest Region and into BC on the 12th, my photograph is probably a little late to have captured that event. However, it did arrive early for St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) and dressed in an appropriate color I might add.
In the original frame the signs on the buildings are clearly detailed, indicating that the object was at some altitude above the ground and not close to the lens as people might suspect. In the camera's macro mode (used in taking this photograph), the autofocus system will shorten the focal distance when something is up close to the lens, resulting in a blurred and unfocussed background against which the well-focused foreground object appears. This effect does not occur in the UFO photograph. Readers can compare the UFO image with many other images that do show this effect in the photo gallery on my website,
Here are some facts about the event:
