Object seen while veiwing airial (chemtrail) jet spraying.

While watching repeated airial jet spraying being done over the region (chemtrails) at noon on Labor Day, I spotted an object which appeared stationary in the view of my 11 X 80 binoculars. The object was very high, appeared shinny and reflecting sunlight. It was situated almost directly overhead. Regional latitude is 45°. The sky was clear except for the clouds created by the arial spraying, surface temps around 80°, winds calm. I set up my tripod and camera with zoom lens to 450 mm. I took several pictures of this but even with this magnification the object was still quite small. In the veiw finder I noticed a slight movement to the west. This change in position was similar to speed and direction as if watching a star at night i.e earth's rotational movement. Is it possible to see the International Space Station during a bright sunny day? If not then I'm unsure as to what this may have been. At this time the photos are still undeveloped.

((NUFORC Note: Although much has been said and written about the alleged "chemtrails," we continue to reserve judgment on that issue. We have seen no strong evidence to support their existence, in fact. However, we do not know what the object was that the witness apparently witnessed. PD))
