Full Description & Details

I was at my Mom's house to visit on a crystal clear day and as we were sitting outside I looked up and noticed a very bright star-like object high in the eastern sky moving very slow in a SW direction. I always bring my camera with me as there are deer and foxes in the area and I enjoy getting photos of them so, I grabbed my camera and managed to get 5 photos of what I expected to be maybe a bundle of Mylar balloons. Boy, was I wrong ! After looking at the photos I think this may be a satellite but I would like to know for sure. I was looking at hundreds of pictures that people have taken of satellites or the space station from the ground and hardly any are in the daylight and most are very distorted. I was using my Nikon Coolpix P 500 with a 36X optical zoom and I am just not sure if I could have gotten that good of a photo of a craft in orbit. These photos were taken on June 19,2013 at 12:42 PM. I will try to send a short video clip, but I'm not sure if it will send. I would really appreciate your opinion. Thanks, Rick Forte

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I have always been interested in the topic and watch anything dealing with UFO sightings. I think it's ridiculous to think we are alone in this universe.

Other Comments

I still think this may be a satellite, but would be tickled to death if you were to disagree with me. Please let me know what you think.
