Duration:5-7 min
Pinprick of blue-white light seen from the interstate that blurred in almost a digital fashion , seen early in the morning.

I recently moved to Taylors S.C. while in the middle of the spring semester at my school. Since the move, I've had to make a 45min drive down I85 to get to exit 19B in Anderson S.C. to get to Tri-County Technical College in Pendleton S.C. in the morning. While driving past exit 35 on 85 I noticed an extremely bright object over the tree line. It was like a pinprick of blueish white light. Just by the objects appearance I was able to decern it was not any type of conventional aircraft. If it was a passenger jet really far away, then its lights were way too bright, If it wasn't very far away then it had no discernable shape and it hovered motionless in the air. From what I saw I think it was pretty far away though. One noticable event that happened was that the light blurred for one moment then returned to its normal brightness. When I say blurred I don't mean it looked as if it was obscurred or anything like that. It sort of fizzled. The thought immeadiatly came to my mind that it seemed almost pixilated like a distortion on a crappy computer monitor. I was on the interstate so I quickly got to a point where my vision was obscurred by the trees and I lost it completely.
