Bright silver sphere larger than a planet viewed in bright daylight. Observed through binoculars, object appeared translucent in the center. Moved slowly N/E.
Approximately 5:00 PM Saturday 9/30/17 I looked up into a nearly cloudless sky and saw a bright white/silver sphere that appeared approximately 5 times larger than a typical star. For about 10 minutes the object was stationary. I retrieved a set of binoculars and steadied them against a fence post. The object then appeared to be translucent around the inside with a small solid dot white dot in the center.
As I watched the object it began slowly moving in a north easterly direction. When first sighted the object was stationary but when it began to move it very gradually did so and then began moving a little faster. I viewed the object for about ten minutes and it was stationary. When it began moving I estimated the time that it would disappear behind the trees to be about another 10 to 15 minutes. Had the movement of the object remained the same my estimated time frame would have been correct.
Due to the nearly imperceptible increase in speed the object moved out of sight behind the trees. I have seen stars in both the night and day sky, with and without cloud cover. This object was larger, brighter and moved differently than any other stars I have witnessed. A high flying passenger aircraft flew through the sky while the object was visible and it was easily distinguishable as a common man made aircraft. The object I viewed today was neither a man made aircraft nor a bright planet that is often seen in the daytime sky. There was no possible way that I mistook the moon to be the object I witnessed.
