Double Reflection
New Mexico, on Oct 20, 2003

Time stamp 5:42 sunset and then to the right a comet like object shows on the water and it turns red as it move across the water, converging where the sun sets.
The Sun is setting behind the mountains, and can be seen as a white ball reflection in the water. There is something more overhead, however, not blocked by the mountains so it is the the left of the photo with a diagonal reflection on the water, the Fire Dragon which does not show in the photos but is reflected in the water at 2 o'clock to the Sun! As there is no orange glow of reflected sunlight in the clouds, what is it that is orange, separate from the Sun, that is being reflected in the water?
