Experience Level3/5
RemarksFirst time seeing something like this. Daughter and I both thought shooting star but it was big. 4-5x the apparent size of Venus, Much brighter. It appeared to be so close. Have to believe other cars saw it from the highway (it's a dark area so no extraneous light issues)
