Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Lighted circular object over Bend, Oregon.

I was with my mom, driving home. I was in the passenger seat and was trying to locate the moon through the windshield. I saw a ball of light moving at a medium speed for a short period of time before it disappeared into clouds. My mom saw it too, because she then asked "Did you just see that?". I don't think it was a plane, because planes aren't lit up like that. It could have been a satellite, but it was moving too fast to be any normal one that I've seen.

It looked like a shooting star almost, but without the trail, and without the speed of one.
