One of the guys at my work seen something moving in the sky (slow enough for him to grab his camera and take the following pics)

Photos were taken at 0705am on Thursday 5th July.

Object was NE of camera position (27°47’53.00”N 15°41’51.56”W).

Can anyone shed any light on this, let me know its name/designation?

I would say it's more likely to be contrails from a plane illuminated in the morning sunrise, especially if it was seen to be moving.

Taking your point of view into consideration, that actually makes a lot of sense.....

It happens quite often, I have something similarish in the top left of a photo I took in Santorini and see it quite often just before sunset(I rarely make sunrises these days)

It's easy to see how it can be misinterpreted as a comet or meteor.

Still they make a nice photo.

Id go with that, I have seen this quite a bit in the past and it can look very weird at first.
