No UFO here? Just SOLAR SAIL Reflections?

This photo is from NASA displaying sunlight glinting off the sail's reflective fabric.
spaceweather.com...


The reflected light can rival a 3.5 magnitude star. In a recent ATS thread, it can be visible behind the ISS and can be seen in a Youtube video as a photo seen above San Jose CA. I thought ATS would appreciate this photo and explanation.

Here is the photo of the sail above San Jose. I must admit, it looks like there is a wave of three of these objects.
I don't know, I have no explanation for this.

Mods.
I'm beginning to doubt if the second photo is really the solar sail or something else.
Please move it to a different forum if appropriate.
Thanks.
Violator1 out.

Are the solar sails that long or is this a time lapsed photo that makes it look like a long streak?

Sorry, I don't know much about solar sails and was just wondering.

This is an artists rendition of what the solar sail is supposed to look like.



I'm beginning to smell Bravo Sierra fro NASA
