Shape: Light
Duration:
At 0400 on 07/13/12, I was returning from work, driving East on I-10. I noticed an extremely bright light in the sky, illuminating like a star but extremely low on the horizon toward Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS. The description matches the posting on this sight that occurred on 05/19/12.

I arrived home approximately 10 minutes after I first noticed the light. It could still be observed in the sky. I watched it for approximately 20 minutes. It did not move.

My wife thought it might be a star but it was way too low on the horizon and seemed to generate its own light. Extremely bright-the brightest thing in the sky.

From my location, with my arm extended I made a crude attempt to measure the object utilizing my thumb and index finger.

The object was approximately a ½ inch from top to bottom. It has not been observed since.
