    So I was at the beach in White Rock with my wife tonight, and was taking some shots for my photography class... And just as the sunset was going down, this guy that was watching it pointed out to us this white dot in the sky. It wasn't giving out any light, it was just a white circular object.

    Any ideas?

    Damn it! I knew it!
    Hmm... it was weird tho. It wasn't moving or giving off any light. Just a white object in the sky...

    It has something akin to a normal cloud to it, I should say (from your enlargement). Though I, too, would wonder how it got there. But then I once saw the development of a cloud out of "nothing", just sky, blue, no other cloud in sight, before. It's when different air layers (of different density and temperature) come together. From below, air looks like air. You can's "see" the density, humidity (if it is light enough), temperature. It all looks the same. Yet sometimes it isn't and suddenly a cloud forms. I should guess something like that happened.

    The same thing is the secret of the "sound barrier breech" photos, it's not actually the soundbarrier that causes it, it's the way the air density, temprature and moisture content come together as the aricraft passes through creating that cloud on the wings out of thin air (so to speak).

    I too thought spontanious cloud at first sight.

    It's a white entity of water, usually referred to as 'cloud'.
    Nice photo.
