Someone dropped the moon in West Paterson

It was around 7.50pm, I was driving on route 80 East, I was in West Paterson, right before the "record" building. I happen to look to my left because something that wasn't there a second before now was. At first I thought the moon appeared, that it might have been blocked by a tree or something. That "moon" was far but close at the same time, too close to be the moon but it was completly full, and white. But it was a bit small for a full moon.. There seem to have been a bit of haze it front but it was really clear. And all of the sudden it dropped. Perfectly dropped down, my first thought was something crashed or the moon dropped but that was silly, I wanted to go around the bend to see a clearer view of the moon, that maybe it would have been obstructed but I knew it was not the moon, and I knew whatever was crashed. And for sure, when I went arond the bend, there was nothing there, nothing in the sky...No reports of anything crashing, I called the West Paterson Police department, they probably thought i was crazy.
