    Default Identifying Help



    Hi all!

    This is my first post here, but I took a photo earlier while out fishing mostly for non-astronomy reasons. After looking at it later this evening, however, I noticed a bright object present in the photo. I'm not sure how to go about identifying or what popular tools can help. I'll provide the photo and some information here. Maybe somebody can help me out and let me know what I see in this photo?

    So this was taken at about 1:27 PM on the coast at Keansburg, New Jersey, USA. What am I looking at here?

    It looks like a lens reflection to me.
