Planet X on C2C Site?

Planet X on C2C Site?

According to Nancy Lieder, unbeknownst to us, we've had a photo(1) of Planet X posted on our website, sent in by one of our listeners. She writes of the object situated below the moon, it's "certainly not a lens flare. There's the dust cloud around the corpus. Is the size right? Moon/Venus photos aplenty to compare how big Venus is, to the Moon, but this guy looks about several sizes larger than Venus. Well, that's its size! 4XVenus or Earth size! It's Planet X!!!"
Stuart, the person who took the photo posted on our site, responds:
I do not know if it was a planet, I'm leaning toward it not being a planet. Reason: It was only in the sky for a few moments before it seemed to dissipate or fade from view. This "sight" of whatever this was could only been seen from about 15 to 20 seconds before it just melted away...or dissolved. My view or knowledge of planets does not lend itself to the opinion that this was a planet, it was too low in the atmosphere and appeared for too short of a time to be an orbital body.
My opinion is that it was either something entering into the atmosphere or something leaving the atmosphere. I feel that it was something leaving the atmosphere because of the halo effect that dissipating outward from the brightest center...giving it the look as if it were moving away at great speed.
I did think that while I was looking through the camera that it was a reflective light source off the camera lens, but when I moved the camera from my eye...I could still see the event in my sight.
