A Medway man captured a picture which seems to show a blue planet clearly in the sky.
Gintas Indriliunas, 29, said his wife noticed one planet-shaped object in the sky and asked him to take the photo.
The snap snows a blue-tinged orb with what looks like a line through it.
There is also another glow to the left side of it which appears to be rainbow colours and is orb shaped.
Mr Indriliunas, 29, didn't know what the orb was.
The couple captured the unusual spectacle at about 12.30pm today.
Mr Indrilinuas, dad-of-one, said: “Could it be a planet? Not too sure what is it. Looks like one more sun really.
"My wife and I thought it was so special she made a wish after she spotted it."
Elsewhere in the Towns, in Gillingham, Justin Bennett took another photo when he spotted the orb.
He said: "I snapped this photo from the Royal Engineers museum in Gillingham.
"The sun was in the middle, but out of shot and there were two rainbow coloured orbs in the sky.
"It looked beautiful and the photo doesn’t really do it justice - my two children and my dad witnessed it too."
The five brightest planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn can easily be seen with the naked eye from earth.
They are visible for much of the year, except for short periods of time when they are too close to the Sun to observe.
