A small white star next to the sun in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Me and my dad were hitting fly balls at a school across the street from us. I am interested in airplanes, and we live about 40 minutes away from Sky Harbor International Airport. I like to look at the different planes flying over our heads when I hear them, but when I was looking at a plane, I saw a white speck about an inch away from the sun according to me standing on the ground. It looked like a star and was really high. It didn't seem to move at all for about 30 minutes. I showed my dad, and he didn't know what it was. When we got home, I found a pair of binoculars and tried to observe the object from our backyard. I couldn't make out what it totally looked like because the binoculars kept moving a little. But I could tell it didn't look like a weather balloon or an aircraft. By then, it actually was moving but at a very very slow pace. It now seemed about 3-4 inches away from the sun. I then got our telescope out and tried to focus on it. When I got it, the image was really blurry but now up close it had a goldish shade to it. I picked up my binoculars again and looked at it, and it looked the same as before. Then when I tried to focus the telescope on it again, I couldn't find it again, but it was still in the sky. Me and my dad have witnessed a similar object about a year ago, but was in a different part of the sky. Who knows, maybe it was the same UFO revisiting.
