Good one. S-man. Well, U never know...
Yes, my guess was also on meteoroid, but I’m not shore. It looks like kind off too big for meteoroid...

Not even an identified flying object, IMO. It could have been an out of focus contrail but the hills on the horizon aren't sufficiently out of focus to allow that.

Much more likely to be lens flare. It is "pointing" directly towards the Sun.

Yep, I'd say it's flare from the Sun, but if you hadn't been pointing at the Sun, it could have been a cloud...

Or a superhero!

My vote goes to rest of a contrail. Looking at my "white-dwarf" tests from my lens-reviews I'd expect a flare to be more well-defined...
