    This flew over my head while I was out for a smoke break.
    What is it?
    Photographed by me.

    Here's another shot - same object.
    I put the cigarette down to snap photos.

    That's really ugly smudge work, Fr. Wayne.

    It's a 737, I think.

    I only made a negative out of it to highlight the edges of wings?

    US smokers in Chicago pay the taxes for the nation's defense. You'd think they would appreciate how much we watch the skies.

    I smoke and I'm a watcher of the sky. I wish I had a telescope, though. I'm sure any watching is much appreciated.

    OK, that's all well and good, but where can I find one of those gigantic Twinkies?

    A DC-9 or MD-80 or some such. Two rear-mounted engines.

    One time, in a bookstore, I picked up a UFO mag. To my astonishment, they were passing off the Hubble Variable Nebula as a UFO.

    A few years ago, someone once said ( about UFO's ) that you have to consider that there is a lot of money to be made here.

    I think that the UFO Phenomena should, as all phenomena, be studied not in the light of possible extra-terrestrial visitation but as a real phenomena that effects people.

    Some of the results might be very interesting and tell us a lot about humanity.

    I'm pretty sure they are.

    Definitely not a 737. A 737 is a tri-jet with two engines on its wings and one in the tail. That's probably a Super-80, MD-80, MD-88.

    *sigh* Unfortunately Candy got herself banned, again. I was hoping she'd have learned, but I guess not.

    A 727 has three engines, on the tail. (A DC10 has engines on the wings and one on the vertical stabilizer) Looks too short to be an MD-80 but it could be angled a bit and may only appear short. Without that, it seems the size of a DC9-30 but Focker 100s (though it doesn't really look like the Focker) look like that too as well as the new gizmo they were making that looked like a DC-9-30 but new and with the glass cockpit.

    Anyway, my vote DC9 or the boeing knockoff but that is a lousy picture so there's no way for me to be sure.
