Daylight satellite visibility





At 1003Z (1703EST) i observed at 80 degrees elevation coming from south to north a brilliant fast moving 
object reflecting sunlight (sun was at west) too fast to be a plane movement match fast polar satellite track.
No jet condensation trail...

Question is knowing that iridium flash can be observed is large solar panel satellite can be viewed in daylight.

Keeping aside UFO things...
