Sphere with skinny extension viewed through a telescopeIn daylight, through a 6" Celestron Star Hopper telescope, we viewed a very slow moving sphere. The sphere appeared to be in orbit considering it moved out of view of my telescope about as fast as Saturn would. The object was visible by the naked eye, but it looked like a star, and you couldn't see its form.From the view of the telescope, the sphere had a skinny extension that was roughly 6 times the length of the sphere with a second much smaller sphere mounted to the opposite end. The larger sphere was stationary while the extension and rotated wildly around it. The rotational pattern held a consistent speed, but was inconsistent in direction. The only visible color was white.The object held a very stationary position in the sky. It was seen directly overhead, and traveled about 15 degrees south before disappearing. We viewed the object for approximately 10 minutes, and it was easy to keep it in the viewfinder of my telescope.This was just before the Canisius Lake "Ring of Fire" 3rd of July event where all lake residents light road flares on their lake front property and light off fire works.
