I was taking a tour of Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California with my family on July 25, 2014. Around 11:15am, PST, we were nearing completion of our tour and I was taking dozens of pictures outside of the actual Castle/Building. I did not notice anything while taking pictures. On July 27, 2014 I finally removed my SD Card and started to review my pictures on a laptop computer. One picture of the towers on the front of the Hearst mansion had a bird flying in it so I zoomed in to look at the bird and noticed an unidentifiable object towards the top of the picture. It does not have wings and appears to be a “typical” flying saucer type object. I did not notice this object when I was actually taking the pictures and no one in my family noticed it that day which leads me to believe it was not making any sound or was too high to be heard. I’m stationed nearby, in the Army and am fairly tuned in to what is going on around/above me. I’m surprised that I didn’t actually see this while taking pictures. I’m attaching the unaltered photo file as well as a “cropped” picture with a red circle around the object I’m referring to. It does not look familiar but I don’t own a high quality camera so I’m limited on picture quality.
