|Unusual bright object, visible during mid-day; bright blue sky.
At about 13:00 on July 27, 2015, I observed a very bright light through 10 power binoculars. It was about 20 degrees east of the sun.
Sky conditions were cloudless with a brilliant blue sky.
I discovered it while following an airliner flying overhead from North to South trailing a contrail. The object was not visible with the naked eye.
The object was stationary and visible for over an hour. It had a shape like a small quarter moon. I initially thought it might be Venus but could find no Internet reference stating that Venus would be visible during daylight. Nor could I find any Internet reference to any object visible during daylight.
My wife observed and confirmed my observation.
