Sighting Details

My wife and i were having coffee outside on our patio. it was 9:40 on Jan 4. it was 65. degrees. skies were crystal blue except for jet contrails. i saw a perfect x formed in the sky by two jet contrails and wanted to get a picture. there were also birds flying over our pool. using my iPhone 6, i snapped a few pictures of the sky. a few hours later i went to look at the photos. to my amazement, there appeared to be more than just a bird and contrails in the sky. i showed my wife the pictures and zoomed in to see the object. she was also amazed. 4 other people have seen the picture now and they have said looks like a ufo. we did not see this object when i took the pictures. only later when zooming in. i would not have pursued this today except that the detail and coloring of the UFO was so clear i wanted to share it with someone in this business. the reference with both the contrails and bird show this object was there.
