date: 17/06/2017 location: south leicestershire, uk time: 08.35am camera: nixon d5300 with a tamron 70-300mm lens. i was making myself a cup tea and while waiting for the kettle to boil i went outside in the back garden to talk to my dad. it was a beautiful morning, clear blue sky and i noticed a bright star like light appear from behind a row of trees at the bottom of my garden. it was travelling roughly from the west to the east in a straight line towards the morning sun. i got a pair of binoculars from inside but couldn’t see much through them. so then i rushed to get my camera and took some photos. the object was moving from right to left from my point of view and must have been very high. eventually it disappeared behind a roof, i did try to find it again from the front of my house but couldn’t see it. even zoomed in at 300mm there wasn’t much to see but when i zoomed in digitally afterwards i saw something really bizarre. a very bright (reflective?) object that seems to be kind of a vertical to the horzion hoop shape. when looking at the photographs afterwards (i've got 20 in all) i also noticed a blurry spot (in the white circle) which i thought was a fleck of dust on the sensor until i browsed the other photos and saw that it moved from right to left and then disappeared when just below the main object. i’ve searched around the internet to see if i can find anything at all that even looks remotely like it but have had no joy. this is by far the strangest thing i’ve ever seen, because i saw it with my own eyes, it's difficult to stop thinking about it. it’s one thing seeing other people’s videos or photographs but it’s something else to see it with your own eyes.
