THE OBJECT LIT UP THE SKY LIKE A SMALL MOON

ON 2/13/09 AT AROUND 10PM I WAS DRIVING HOME ON A RURAL ROAD FROM COLUMBUS OHIO.I WAS DRIVING WITH MY SON 13 AND DAUGHTER 9.MY HIGH BEAMS WERE ON AND MY ATTENTION WAS FIXED TO THE ROAD. IN MY PERIPHIAL VISION TO MY LEFT I NOTICED A LARGE WHITE CIRCULAR LIGHT. I TURNED MY HEAD AND YELLED FOR MY KIDS TO OBSERVE, THEY WERE STARTLED AND BY THE TIME I GOT THERE ATTENTION IT WAS GONE. IT LOOKED LIKE A SMALL MOON DECINDING AT AN ANGLE TOWARDS THE GROUND AT AN HIGH RATE OF SPEED.IT ACTUALY LIT UP THE CLOUDS MUCH LIKE THE MOON DOES AS CLOUDS PASS BY IT. AS IT REACHED WHAT IT APPEARED TO BE GROUND LEVEL IT WAS SIMPLY GONE, NO EXPLOSINS NO SOUND NO NOTHING.I HAVE SEEN PLENTY OF SHOOTING STARS IN MY LIFE BUT THIS OBJECT LEFT NO SPARKLING TRAIL. VERY UNUSUAL,BRIGHT AND LARGE.
