Hello! New to the community. I had a great time shooting the eclipse yesterday. At 19:31:44Z, I observed an object transit the sun. It took about 5-6 seconds to cross the unobscured portion of the sun. None of my star chart apps show anything in that position at that time. Does anyone know what this could be?
