i found this odd reflection outside plymouth.

any ideas about what this is? seems like a reflection of sorts, but seems to be abnormaly strong, though.

What about a large greenhouse?

This is a normal reflection for a greenhouse? I suspectt something i like that, seeing that he sat.pic. is in strong daylight.

Though, i think it's a nice shot anyhow.
(What I do wonder about, however, is why this particular building reflects the light so strong - but not the surrounding buildings (which look like greenhouses. But of course it could depend on the angle.))

it depends on the angle. the sun and the sattelite have to be placed in a special way, and the other greenhouses have another roof construction (?).

Since it's in the middle of a field, it could be a "polytunnel" which is like a long polythene tent used to protect crops from frost/animals/etc. They are used as greenhouses, but the clear plastic sheeting would reflect the sunlight a lot more. The buildings next to it could be just storage sheds with corrrugated iropn roofs, or something like it because a greenhouse won't be much use with a solid, opaque roof.

Maybe something passed between the sattelite and Earth right when the picture was taken?
