Location: Grays (Essex)(UK/England),
Shape: Circle
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Strange orb with lights in the sky.

I was sunbathing in my garden, when I looked up and saw what I think and believe to be a sundog.

I went in and grabbed my mobile phone and took several photographs of it. I took them lying on the ground looking up. I came in immediately to look at the photo's and saw in all of them a round orb.

In one photo, it appears within the ring of the sundog and in another taken less than a second after it appears outside of the sundog.

It was white and had several lights on it. In all pics there are different numbers of lights.

Obviously being so close to the sun, I didn't see anything with the naked eye.

It wasn't the moon as I could see the moon in a crescent over in the western sky.

I am more than happy to send you the photo's as I am desperate to know what this object is.

((NUFORC Note: Probably a lens flare, we suspect. PD))
