    Rafael:

    I'm going to double-down on my estimate, with a two-day modification. Assuming you were on the boardwalk in Belmar, NJ, I believe you took these sights on Saturday, November 16, 2019. It was sunny in NJ that day, so that's a positive. The latitude is consistent with the maximum altitude on that date. The longitude implied by the axis of symmetry is 8' west of your actual position, which is about 6 nautical miles error in longitude (in that latitude). So that should be pretty satisfying!
