He can’t figure out what the mysterious objects are and says he has never seen anything like it. Jim Montanus is a photographer who lives in the town of Greece, New York, a few miles northwest of Rochester. On Wednesday night he was on the docks of the Braddock Bay Marina when he decided to take pictures of the clouds rolling in as they slowly covered the piercing bright twinkling stars against the clear dark night sky. Montanus told the Democrat & Chronicle newspaper, “It was a very dramatic situation with that front coming in. I was all excited about the photo.” Upon reviewing the images in the viewfinder he spotted two orange cone shaped objects he had not seen with is naked eye. He says, “I was looking at these shapes on the back of my cameras and saying what IS it? I don’t believe in UFOs, but, you know, it’s just one of those things. It was just cool.” It was 9:34 pm, and the objects were to the northwest. The camera was set on 15-second timed exposures, so it could pick up more light in the night sky. The images were captured in several different frames, leading Montanus to believe the objects were moving. More at
