The report:

Subject: infrared photo

Good evening,

I realized this photo (aperture: f5.6, speed: 1/1000 second, focal length: 14mm, infrared photo 720 nm) 3 or 4 years ago in the south of France,

I really have trouble with this photo, I have a blur over the mountains and the speed at which I was, this element should have been much less blurred.

If you can give me your opinion, thank you in advance.

Good evening ++

PS: I sent this picture to GEIPAN, they said it must be a bird.

The EXIF data of the image gives the date of August 24, 2014, the time of 12:39. There was intervention on the image with the GIMP software - this does not mean that the "UFO" was added.

The camera is a NIKON P60, focal length of 5.6, exposure of 1 / 1000th of a second, focal length 14 mm, as said in the report, no zoom, no flash, exposure manually set.

I share the opinion of GEIPAN: it is probably a bird, or maybe rather an insect, more likely to cause the blur, because of its proximity resulting in a displacement much faster than a distant bird.
