I am seeking the knowledge of those more in the know and appologise in advance if i am been completely uneducated or even dumb for use of a better
Today, 13th Dec at about 11am local time ( York,UK ) I happened to notice in what is a almost clear bright blue sky, a "daytime star". This star was
bright and even visable behind the high light clouds that occasionally passed infront.
I just happened upon seeing it in the SW sky at about 30-35 degree elevation.
Now i am probably going to be told that this is a regular thing and why all the fuss! but for me i have never seen this not at this time of day and
not such brightness. This lasted for approx 15-20 mins
Is it a star burning bright in the daytime sky?
Is it a geo-stationary sattelite ? ( I did check sattelite tracking on spaceweather.com )
Is it a brief showing of planet Venus or other?
And finally why did it appear for only 20 mins?
I will be honest now and my initiall reaction was of excitement as i was truly hoping for my first UFO sighting who knows maybe a mother ship in high
atmosphere lit up briefly by the morning sun. I did attempt to view it through my 70mm telescope but was unable to focus on it! and as for pictures (
now your not gonna like this ) but i could not find any batteries for my 10meg pic camera
