What you are describing fits an Iridium satellite flare. A good one will be brighter than Venus.

Probably part of a coronal mass ejection. As for why it looks so circular I don't know. I'm not an expert on the physics of CMEs. Whatever the reason for the shape I can assure you its no reason to leap to fantastic or absurd conclusions.

Could you please film it for us in the southern hemisphere and upload to youtube?
Sorry but I didn't LEAP to anything...I simply asked what it is.
I just find it unusual to see a near perfect circle event so close to the effects the sun generates...
BTW, no one has given anywhere near a decent answer as to what it is so I consider it still unknown.
I dont see how you can just flame a poster for asking a question you haven't answered...

Does anyone recall his thread about 'The Sun is pregnant'.... and he went on to say that planets were born the sun.....
Anyone else remember this?
Looks to me that the sun may have just birthed its new 'baby'......
