Miles, 41, of San Antonio, said he recently flew to Port Aransas to spend the day walking the beach.
“My passenger took it on Sunday as we made our final approach,” he said.
But they never actually saw the object from the cockpit of their Cessna. His passenger was simply snapping photos of their landing and they never noticed the strange streak until they were flipping through the photos at a nearby restaurant.
The object only appeared in one of the photos.
