Location: Asheville, NC
Shape: Sphere
Duration:Not sure
What was thought to be glare from the Sun turns out to be Strange Orb on Indian Land.

I do not recall seeing the sphere until the last picture I took when I stopped at the Blue Ridge Parkway Visitors Center. I took a picture of the sun along with the surroundings my entire trip back to Charlotte, however there at the visitors' center, that last picture I noticed what I thought was a glare on the screen of my cell phone as I snapped the picture suddenly there was a bright light, at the time I thought nothing of it thinking it was the sun, but later on I looked at the picture and I noticed the sphere had a glow around it zoomed in and realized what it was. It is in every picture I took of the sun that day, but the only one with a glow around it. The pictures with the clouds really gives you a clear view of it looks like.

I will include only the picture with the glare around it until I can confirm this is a legit form I am filling out.
