Bay Minette, Alabama Daytime Light Sitting Stationary

Date: January 15, 2005
Time: 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon


Back on 1-15-05 I was on lunch break at my usual time of 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon in Bay Minette, Alabama. I have a spot that I usually go to and sit in the car. After finishing the usual fast food junk I started sky watching (something I do way too much) to pass the time until returning to work. After several minutes I spotted a light sitting stationary in the sky to my ENE about 75 degrees up. The object was hard to see with the naked eye.

Here is a wide angle view of the sky just after the sighting. The object is not in this photo and I include it only for reference. The yellow box represents the location of the object in the sky. After reaching in the back seat and grabbing my camera case I removed the camera and took the following picture.

This was taken with 10x optical zoom. The object being in the lower center of the photo. It appeared at least as high as the contrail it was next to. After taking this photo the object vanished. It appeared as a star in the day time to the naked eye. Just a point of light.

This crop is from the actual full size photo. Below is yet a closer view.

The wind was out of the north 5-10 mph.No sound was heard. Total time of sighting was around 30 seconds. That's about it.

Thank you to the witness for the report and photos.
