Description: Witness saw slow moving round silver object for 5 to 10 seconds. The object suddenly disappeared. There were two witnesses. Two photos were taken and one was lost. The object made no sound.
Additional Information From Witness: We were on freeway gong to downtown Little Rock between 9 and 10 AM. I saw the object that was a round silver. It thought that this was the moon because the Sun was to the right. It disappeared real fast and had some blue look like a triangle inside. It was a real bright light.
Note: It is important to note that the witnesses saw the object so the object is not a “lens flare” from the Sun. However, a look at astronomical data shows that Venus was in the sky where the object appears in the photo. I am surprised that the witnesses saw Venus and that it showed up as large as it the object in the photo. Venus was not particularly bright (magnitude -3.9). Venus can be as bright as magnitude -4.2 (lower number indicates more brightness). Also the object abruptly disappeared and was only visible for a few seconds. The witnesses also said that the object was moving slowly. (Personally I have never seen Venus in the daytime.)Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
