Image Analysis
Page 7

Figure 7 – Unknown object in the top center clouds.

Examining the EXIF data from the photo in Figure 7 shows that the photo was edited.

In Figure 8 the EXIF data reveals that the photo was taken on 7/3/2014 at 11:47:23am.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.5 was used on that same date at 8:34:03pm.

It also shows the author’s name, who also happened to be the person submitting the case to Florida-MUFON. 

This is another case that otherwise would have shown a disposition of Unknown UAV. Instead, it was shown as a deliberate hoax and the final disposition was Hoax – Keystroke.
(Note: this case may just be a misidentification. Lightroom is used by many photographers to organize and enhance their images.

This software is not typically associated with edited hoaxes, however there are always exceptions).
