UFO photographed over haunted Santee's Edgemoore Barn

Santee - A woman, Ellen Henry, snapped photos of an unidentified flying object (UFO) hovering over the historical Edgemoore Barn, in Santee, California, a famous spot for paranormal activity and alleged ghost sightings.
Edgemoore Barn has a long history of claims of strange sightings and incidents. The barn, now a museum, is celebrating its 100th birthday. According to ABC Affiliate News 10, it was once part of a hospital facility. Several paranormal investigations have been carried out at the site after unexplained sightings of ghosts, apparitions and strange noises such as stomping boots.
The site even has a "ghost log" where the strange incidents and sightings are recorded
Henry, a member and researcher with the Santee Historical Society (SHS) in San Diego County, told News 10 that she is convinced that whatever it was that she photographed "was not from this world." She said: "I was like what was it doing there. Why was it there? What was it doing? And I said, the next time I come here, the barn will be beamed up."
She was taking pictures of the building when she noticed an "anomaly" in one of the photos she snapped. The Huffington Post report she said: "I was at the Edgemoor property, in the middle of the day, to take pics of the barn to update the SHS barn logo. I was constantly looking up and around the area, including the sky's background, so I can get it just right, and not at anytime did I see anything in the sky or heard a sound of an aircraft."
She noticed a "speck" on the LCD screen of her camera after she had taken the shot. She realized it was not a speck when she downloaded the photo on her computer.
She told News 10: "It was clear and certainly not a bug."
News 10 investigated the possibility that it might have been an aircraft. But according to Santee Patch, Ellen Henry said she didn't hear or see anything resembling an aircraft when she was snapping the photo. She noticed the "saucer-shaped" object only after she uploaded it to her computer and enlarged the image.

Janet Kwak said in a News 10 report: "The barn sits under several flight paths. We called Gillespie Field and MCAS Miramar (Marine Corps Air Station), but neither could offer an explanation."
Henry said: "There is no way this was a commercial aircraft. I would have heard it, especially as low as it seemed to be. Someone did mention perhaps it was a drone. However, I have not seen any drones that were round or oval, and lacking wings, rudders or propellers -- even the drone that looks like a fly has wings."
Some agree with Henry that the object is other-worldly. Elaine Murphy, president of the Santee Historical Society, said: "We think someone's come into the barn and we get up to look, and no one is there."
But could this be a hoax to attract tourists to the barn?
