Saw a bright light in the blue sky during the afternoon and the light "turned" and I saw the side of "it" and the &

On the way home after work, southbound I-5. The skies were completely blue. We were on the stretch of I-5 where there was nothing around but fields of grass and farmland. With this setting, there are no clouds and there were no tall buildings or city light.

I think I saw a ((deleted)) UFO.

So I'm driving and I'm just looking into the distance and I spot a really bright light in the sky. At first I thought it was just a plane, but I've never seen a plane with that bright of a light during the daytime when the sun's still out, especially with how far it was. Then I thought it was just a really bright star. I pointed it out to my girlfriend and she saw it, too, and we joked that it was a shooting star. I kept my eye on it because I was still puzzled at the fact I could see a "star" during the daytime in the bright blue sky.

Then, all of a sudden, it was it turned sideways, and I couldn't see the light anymore, but I could see the side of it. Since it was far away, it just looked like a dot. Then, with the blink of an eye, it was gone. The dot was gone and the light was gone. My girlfriend and I were confused.

We were staring into the distant sky trying to spot the "dot" or the "star" we thought we saw, but it just wasn't there. It was gone, like it was never there.

My head hurts from trying to convince myself that it wasn't a UFO and trying to convince myself that it was. I really think it was...
