Location: Houston, TX
Shape: Light
Duration:30 Seconds
Stationary white light hovering in southwest region of Houston, Texas.

Witnessed a light in the sky in the southwest region of Houston. My wife and I were driving on highway 59 (also known as the Southwest Freeway) and we saw a bright stationary light in the sky almost directly in front of us. The sky was generally clear with very few wispy clouds. We watched it and noticed that it didn't seem to move at all, and was very bright- like a large star in the sky. It was a white circular light, shaped like a circle. after about 30 seconds, it seemed to turn into a thin grey diagonal line and then disappeared. We kept searching for it, but it was completely gone.

We observed this from the car headed on Highway 59 south, just north of Beltway 8 (also known as the Sam Houston Tollway).
