This occurred in a small town in the eastern united states. i looked out my second floor window at 7:03 a.M. and saw the sun rising to the right of the house next door. the sun always rises to the left of the house next door, and on this date, it was scheduled to rise at 7:19 a.M. i took three photos of the "false sunrise," which looked like a sun-like egg shining through the forest behind a house on the next block. there are no towers, buildings, reflective objects behind that house. the object was stationary and did not pulse. after observing it for five minutes, i went to feed the cats, and when i returned around 7:13, it was entirely gone. i took a photo of this. around 7:20 there was a glow to the left of the house next door to me and soon i saw and photographed the true sunrise (two photos). i later learned there is a phenomenon called the false sunrise which could have accounted for the presence of the object i observed.
