Right time right place. Was out in my back yard in Brisbane, Australia at about 5:00 pm. The sun was right about on the horizon, but not quite under. I looked up towards the west and saw a big bright star. At first I thought it was maybe Venus, but then realized it was too high in the sky. Don't ask me the degree, don't know.
I kept watching it and it got less bright, so I started thinking it might be a plane heading west. My eyesight isn't the best, even with glasses, but it still seemed to be an object.
Then it flared up again and was really bright but then got dim and completely disappeared.
So yeah, no plane, satellite. Never seen one one daylight. Pretty cool!
