Something on your camera lens? Is there any way to get a bigger version of the picture on here? Or blow up the "beam" part?

My friend took the picture, I actually wasn't there. All other pictures before and after don't have this. So lens not scratched, no hair. totally legit shot. Crazy water spout?? working on getting a higher res picture, but we aren't very savvy with this stuff

It's those Mountain goats! :shock: I knew they were not of this earth, the way they glare at you. Beware!

It's the contrail of a drop of rain or snow (or something small) falling right in front of the camera . There's another, shorter one closer to the lower left corner.
