"star" over maracaibo lake

i live in maracaibo city, zulia state, venezuela, the reason why i´m writting you is because there is a "star" that is being seen quite frequently over our state, in fact i have been seeing it for quite some time, over a year, and i know a lot of people that has seen it too, if you could come here you could see it yourself very easily, it is like a big star but this one has a very strong and shinny light, it is bellow the clouds sometimes,other times over, and it is very common to see as we speak. On the 27 September comming back from work from ojeda city (huge venezuelan oil wells territory) on the eastern coast of the Maracaibo lake, i could apreciatte the light even more shiny and it looked like it was very near the coast, so i took a photo with my cell phone, minutes later i went back and took another one from the dock and this time i could see that it was very near and VERY LOW, so i know now this was not a star, it seemed to move from south OF the lak! e to north, 1 hour later it disapeared, i want you to look at the photos i took so you can tell me what do you think of it. I took 2 photos and one small video. please respond if you are interested in knowing of this case, thanks.

((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of a celestial body? We will look at the photos, if they are sent. PD))
