I was photgraphing the sun using binoculars and solar filters and later saw an object in the photo.

This object was photographed using binoculars fitted with solar filters and a digital camera. I decided to try photographing the sun , though conditions were not optimal due to high clouds that afternoon. I did not notice the white object until the file was downloaded. I am an employee of CN rail, an amateur astro nomer, and a beginning National Weather Service weather spotter. The more I looked at this photo, the more intrigued I became. I would like to try and determine the size of this object . I only wish that I had set the resolution higher on the camera.
