Duration: 1.5 hours
|White luminous small moon like object traversed daytime sky E to W for about 1.5 hours,
We observed a luminous white circular object fly slowly overhead for about 1 1/2 hours. Total time was from about 15:45- 17:15. It looked like a small moon. It moved very slowly from East to West. We were able to watch it through binoculars but could not make out any details or dimension.
Our sighting was verified by a friend who was about 5 miles to the west of us. It was hard to tell how high up it was, but it seemed like many thousand feet as we could both see it at the same time and it appeared generally overhead.
Because of the distance, we have no idea of the size. It never appeared to vary its course, just slow and steady in a straight line. As it got farther away (up and away?) It looked like a very bright star/planet. Much brighter than Venus.
