Description: I was driving home and I saw this object suspended in the air. As I got closer it did not look like anything I had seen before. I stopped and got my cell phone out to take a picture. Before I could get out of my car I had to back up because it had drifted beyond the trees. I backed up far enough to see it again. I had just stepped out of my car and I saw what looked like a normal star light up just above the tallest tree. It was like an evening star, but it was gone in an instant. I took this photo with my cell phone in the southwestern sky. The first photo is the original. In the second I cropped, zoomed and adjusted the lighting.
Note: The object in the photo is the Planet Venus which is very bright in the SW sky (magnitude -4.7). Venus would be visible in the twilight sky long before other stars. Sunset was at 4:33 PM CST.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting. Be detailed in your description.
