Day-light glinting UFO spotted.

On December 29, 2016, I took my daughter and son, as well as my son’s friend, to the zoo. It was a sunny day and the sky was blue with some scattered cumulus clouds.

At approximately 11:00 am we were exiting an exhibit, when I noticed something glint in the eastern sky. I stopped to look and it glinted again. I could not discern its altitude however whatever was flashing (reflecting?) light was stationary. The glinting occurred every 5 seconds or so. I pointed out the object to my son and his friend. They both acknowledged seeing it glint. As I was pointing out the object to them, another zoo patron walked by me and said to me, “You see it too…huh?” I smiled and nodded at him. He kept on walking.

My son, his friend and I observed this stationary glinting object for 5 minutes or so, before it just disappeared. I did not see again for the remainder of the time we were at the zoo. The object was too far away to discern any detail. I have no idea what I saw. I did try to take pictures of the object with my phone, but nothing came out on the pictures I took. To my chagrin, I did not think of taking video of the object.
