Description: Hi William: A couple months ago I sent you two photos of two bright points of light that were in my photographs of birds. Today I got another at about 10:30 AM. I was just north of the border looking south when I took this photo of an Eagle. Whatever it is it is at a very high altitude as I have photographed the high flying bombers flying between Alaska and the lower 48 and I can make them out in the photograph so I know this is a lot higher. The sun was just to the right in the photograph.

Note: The commenter below is an amateur astronomer and found the planet Venus was in the position where the photo was taken. This is likely what was photographed.

    An update to the above, Venus would have been ~ 9 degrees east of the Sun & 4.3 degrees south. Of course, if the object was moving, none of this matters!

      The witness didn’t see the object and only found it in the background of his photo. Yes, Venus would have been in the right position. I have a few photos of Venus taken in the daytime.

        I’ve been an amateur astronomer for 40+ years & I’ve seen Venus in the daytime on numerous occasions. Once you see it, you can easily lose it visually, unless something is nearby, like a crescent Moon.

    It still could have been a specular reflection off an aircraft at high altitude. Also, Iridium satellite daylight flares are another possibility. At that location there were two listed for that date, one at 5:52 AM (-6.1 magnitude!) & another fainter one at 6:23 PM. Of course those don’t match the recorded time, but other satellites do occasionally flare to very bright levels.

    Another more likely astronomical possibility is Venus, which is currently -3.7 magnitude & east of the Sun’s position. The observer indicated the Sun was just to the right in his photo, which makes Venus more likely, especially since he was pointing south.

    • Administrator says:

      Thanks. Yes, Venus would be a possibility. I don’t believe that the space station is visible during the day? I do know that some iridium flares are briefly visible during the day, but they probably would look different than the photo?
