I live in Wash., D.C.

For weeks, I had observed a bright luminous celestial body in the sky I couldn’t identify. The object would rise in the east and proceed in a westerly direction. I was pretty certain that it was not Sirius and it shown so brightly that it had me captivated and perplexed. I mentioned it to an acquaintance who happens to be a professional photographer and "UFO Hunter."

On the morning of July 20, 2010, I called him at 3:00 am and asked him to go outside and take photos of the "star" so that we could figure out what it was. It was larger and brighter than any star I’ve ever seen; even Venus.
