Taken while setting-up at Joshua Tree National Park for sky imaging using Fuji Provia (fine grain film) 8-10 sec./F3 Nikon, scope-mounted to image faint fuzzies.
The Big Dipper was nearby. The object remained stationary against the starfield for at least 10 minutes then vanished. So far, no one has explained what it is.
It remains an U.F.O.
