"This photo is extremely creepy," said Ryan Boone, who claims to have snapped the shot Tuesday before 10 p.m., while waiting in line to ride the Xcelerator rollercoaster.
The 31-year-old Beverly Hills resident sent the photo (original pic) to NBCLA. The photo, which Boone claims is not doctored, shows part of the coaster and looming above it, is a glowing, triangular object in the sky.
"At first I thought it had to be a glare, but there was nothing in the sky to glare off of," said Boone.

He laughed, "I've never been a believer in UFOs until I took this photo and saw it with my own eyes."
Perhaps only adding fodder to conspiracy theorists is that this isn't the first report of a UFO sighting over Knotts Berry Farm and Buena Park. That's if you believe the various websites that track these sorts of things.
As for Knotts Berry Farm, a spokesperson told NBCLA that no visitors had reported seeing anything suspicious to park workers on Tuesday night.
NBCLA sent the photo to the Federal Aviation Authority for review. A spokesperson said they will look into the matter.
