It's described as "hovering" so apparently it didn't shift significantly. Possibly it's related to the "cloud hole" phenomenon we discussed here before, which is thought to be caused sometimes naturally by ice crystals, sometimes artificially by jet exhausts. We saw observations and photos of cloud dispersing close to jet contrails. Another possibility (perhaps combined) is the shadow of a length of contrail cast on an underlying cloud veil. The "object" is said to be only a few hundred meters high though, which would seem to rule out these theories. Is there any evidence of its real height? What altitude are the clouds in the photo I wonder? Did Claudeir Covo establish the time, sun angle, weather etc?
