There's nothing else it could be.
Saw it coming home from cutting grass at work this afternoon, and it was BRIGHT, fiercely so. This is a completely unretouched photo. You can see how much it's brightness forced the camera to speed up the aperture by how dark the cotton field below it is at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. This thing positively RADIATED. And it didn't have a full bow, no curve on the other side, just that sharp, gleaming radiant spear.
Had I seen a fierce, buxom blond Valkyrie astride a huge Percheron riding back up that thing into Valhalla, bearing across her pale-skinned thighs a slain Norseman fresh from the field of glory I'd have not been the least surprised.
