Shape: Fireball
Duration:Approx. 15 minutes
Fireball in the sky. Looked comet-like. Then "stopped" because the "tail" of the comet-like object disappeard. Silver/gray and disc-shaped, but rounded at top and sides.

It was very sunny yesterday. We had been up in Ohio visiting friends. We were travelling down I-75 South when I looked up and saw what looked like a comet in the sky. I pointed it out to my friend and she saw it clearly also. She couldn't really study it like me since she was driving. We both knew it definitely wasn't a plane. Then the "tail" of the object disappeared and it looked like this thing came to a stop. It was a little far away. . .not right over us. It was silvery/gray in color. It was disc-shaped, but rounded on the sides and top. It moved horizontally very quickly, then moved away from our direction. It moved fast, but not so fast it looked like it vanished. We watched it until it was out of our vision.
