UFO


Update: If you think you know what this is, post your guesses in the comments. If you were present when I took the photo... no fair guessing.

Rick: Was your UFO underwater when you took the of out the portal?

Rick Lee said...

Not underwater.

So....where was it?

Rick Lee said...

Hmmm... I guess we should make it a "Mystery Photo". I thought it would be more obvious.

Pete said...

Mystery Photo. My thought exactly when I first saw this but then I thought if I suggested it, I ought to make a guess. Which I can't.

Oh, all right, I'll give it a go: some kind of manufacturer's logo on a car.

Joanna said...

I can't figure it out. I keep looking and looking but...arghhh! My guess is some sort of light fixture.

Hmmmm...

Jerry Pennington said...

Some type of funky light fixture was my thought, too.

Roberta said...

Is it a doorknob?

Goofy guess: Door peephole

Real guess: Can light in ceiling

Rick Lee said...

I wasn't sure whether to accept "some kind of light fixture" but Pastor Jeff hit the nail on the head. It's a "can" light fixture in the ceiling. The trick is that it's in a room where radiologists would be reading x-rays so it has a special flood-type bulb that is filtered dark blue on the business end.

Pete said...

Good one, Rick. I was really stumped but in a delightful way.

Pastor_Jeff said...

It is a very good mystery photo - a common object seen in an usual way. The reflection from the trim and oddly-colored bulb make it hard to identify, and the dark background removes context and perspective. Well done.

Joanna said...

I know you couldn't help but take a photo of it since it had your favorite blue/gold combination of colors.

Now that I "see" the blue bulb, it's pretty clear. Cool.
