Many nights I had observed venus jupiter and mars. But many nights I observed this (whatever) that seemed like a planet but was always in the same place. Directly above the city. I would guess it was in space. I observed it as a disk so not a star.

Over One Mile
Object Flight Path
For at least 6 months I had seen what I thought was a planet but the only
one it could be was saturn. saturn was too far away to be a disk, especially with the naked eye. And I absolutely always saw it in the same
place, directly up. All other space objects move except the North star and
it was not a star as it was clearly a disk. It could be a sattelite in
geosynchronous orbit but to be that large it had to be immense in size, as
geo-sattelites orbit at 23,000 miles up. I cannot guess what it could be,
as I say, it is always in exactly the same place. So I would label it as
unidentified. I would apprciate e-mails from anyone else who has seen it.
