Duration: 20 minutes
|"Star" visible in broad daylight.
I was sitting on my porch, facing south, at approximately 15:45 hrs., when I sensed I was being watched. I stood up and faced north and not quite overhead and immediately locked focus on what appeared to be a bright, unmoving star that did not increase or decrease in light intensity.
I stared at it for about 15 minutes and then asked my wife to confirm what I was seeing, which she did. I used the "Star Walk" app to determine what was overhead, but the only thing in the spot of the star was a real star called, "BeMaine," or "GeMaine." the detail is lost on me, as I can't find it again.
We both watched a further 5 minutes when a small high altitude cloud moved over the "star." When the cloud passed the light was gone. My wife remarked that I had a bit of a sunburn at the end of the day. I also did not sleep at all that night.
The light was not visible the next day (Monday).
Seeing the object was not the weird part; feeling like I was being watched still! bothers me.
((ADDENDUM #1 FROM WITNESS))
It was indeed broad daylight with the sun out west a bit and partly cloudy. "Star Walk" is an astronomy app that shows planets, constellations, and satellites in relation to the user's position/location on earth. There was only a star with a strange name where the light was. No satellites. Planets were further up overhead.
My deepest apologies for not at least attempting a photograph. Feeling like I was being watched and ending up with a sunburn after 20 minutes outside mostly in the shade is what I find most weird. I don't burn easily.

No worries. Approximate location in sky was Elevation 60 degrees Azimuth 33 degrees NE.
