Why is it not lens flare (plus)?
Do lens flares normally leave reflections in the water?
No, but you can have a lens flare that comes from the reflection of the sun, which is exactly what I think this is.
Castlemadeofsand hit the nail on the head, in my opinion. IF there was an object next to the sun being reflected, the reflection would be towards the
TOP of the sun's reflection, NOT the bottom like it is in the video. Whatever it is is NOT in the sky, because its reflection wouldn't be where the
video shows it.
The sun is causing a lens flare, causing the "object" next to the sun. Then, the sun's reflection in the water is causing another lens flare, which is
what appears to be the "objects" reflection.
The fact the "object" appears in FRONT of the clouds proves it is not a celestial body out in space. Combine that with the reflection in the water NOT
being correct, and you can pretty much take it as fact the object isn't there at all.
Castlemadofsand already did an excellent photoshop pic showing what the reflection SHOULD look like, but people still don't seem to get it. So here is
a very basic MS paint picture to show how reflections work, the following is how the reflection SHOULD look, compare it to the reflection in the
video, they are NOT the same, so the reflection is NOT of an object in the sky
