Summary:  This is one of those “hard to be sure” images. It was taken on October 20 of 1960, and seems to show a large oval light source. No object is actually seen, but then again… where there’s smoke, there’s fire. The object seems to be moving from left to right, as you can see a trail of some type to its right in the full size image.
