I came out of a store, yesterday, and noticed a small shiny object in the sky, looking what you'd expect a star to look like. At first, I thought it was a high flying jet with the sun gleeming off it, but as I continued to watch it, it was obviously stationary. I watched it for several minutes with background points of reference to make sure if it WAS moving, but it was not. So, my initial thought was that it was Vensus, since it's been bright at night, but I haven't ever seen it shining close to noon. I live in South West Missouri, it was about 11:30 am, and I was looking towards the west, southwest, probably at a 30 degree inclination or so. Comments?
