I went out for a cigarette at 6.30am (GMT) this morning and this object was just sitting there in the sky to the east. Although it was glowing like a star, I knew it was too big … the other stars were tiny in comparison and you can’t even see them in the pic. I sat and watched it for 10 mins and it didn’t seem to move. It wasn’t until I looked at the pic this morning and zoomed in, I notice that it’s spherical.
It may be totally unrelated, but the second pic I took at 9.00am. This isn’t the sun (it was south-east) but it actually looked like the sky had 2 suns for a bit, and like the sun, it hurt my eyes to look at it.
