Sighting Details

I and a friend had stopped at Craggy Gardens visitor's center on the Blue Ridge Parkway on Saturday, May 3rd at about 3:20. We were looking towards the NE taking photos of the mountains when we noticed a very, very bright object/light hovering just above the mountain range in the distance. The light appeared at about 3:30. The day was sunny, bright with few clouds. There were about 20 people there as well and we were all looking at the light discussing what it could be. A few cars even stopped on the road and asked what "that bright light is?" I was using my friend's Kodak digital 10 megapixel camera and immediately zoomed in on the object. I could not see any details except it looked round and was extremely bright. I have included a photo of the object. I had to resize the original photo to post it on this site but would be willing to send the original 10 megapixel photo along with the others I took. I took several photographs at different zoom settings to make sure I had the surrounding area for reference. The light lasted about 10 to 20 minutes and then slowly faded away, never moving from it's original spot. The photos I took show that the light never moved from it's original position. No other effects were noticed by any of the witnesses that I know of. I have sharpened the photo and increased the contrast but otherwise I have not retouched the photo in any way and still have the original if needed. I did try and zoom up close to the light but the camera could not focus on the object/light. I don't know if an out of focus image of the object/light is of any interest or help, but I have saved it as well. Another photo of the object zoomed in seems to show it changed shape from round to another shape, but I can't be sure. I have included that photo as well.
