Long Description of Sighting Report
Saw a star or planet to the northeast just before sunset. Got telescope and at first thought it was Saturn but it was in the wrong location. Upon further viewing noticed it looked like a parachute or jellyfish reflecting sunlight. It may have produced it’s own light but I think it was the setting sun reflecting. It seemed to be very high and a long distance away. It didn’t seem to move just hover. You could see the detail very well with the telescope but the pictures I took using a DSLR and the scope for a lens aren’t that great. I hope someone can enlarge them without the distortion. The object remained in the same general area , I only lost sight of it because of clouds that moved in. It was in view for at least an hour from the time I noticed it. It appeared to be 30,000 feet or higher.
