The following is an unretouched, unedited photo of a Hawaiian sunrise that I took with my Blackberry's camera last week. What are those UFOs?!?
My first thought was standing lenticular clouds, but the lighting fixture theory is much more probable.
Of course if you open the photo in Photoshop Elements, you can see the various layers, showing that the photo was not taken where it was claimed, but in fact was assembled in Photoshop and patched together from a series of other Hawaiian photos, hiding the obvious parentage of the original photo, which was from Kenya.
A "pair" of "recessed lighting fixtures"? Look again: there are three lights, not two. Draw an imaginary line from the big one under the tree through the smaller one at the end of the branch and keep going in the same direction and you'll see the third. They're equally-spaced, too, so reflected lighting fixtures is as good a guess as any. If there's a fourth, I can't see it.
wv: holobs - what these spacecraft are called in the language of the species who built them.
Of course the white spots aren't really UFO's.
However the giant killer baby head directly above the sun (red chin and cheeks, white lips, white right eye) could be a problem.
But he's probably friendly. My real concern is the Death Star at two o'clock relative to the sun. Cloaking must be down.
Because y'all have been such sports, I'll give you the answer: The "UFOs" are, indeed, recessed light fixtures in the ceiling of the lobby on the Turtle Bay Resort -- I took the picture through the big window, and only saw they were reflected in it when I loaded it on my computer.
