Saw A Circular Shiny Object Or Disk In The Sky

On August 18th, 2013, at approx. 7:30 pm, I was driving to Temecula, CA, from the San Marcos, CA, area. It was still clear daylight at that time and the sky was clearly, clearly visible, a beautiful blue sky. I was on I-15 coming from the south and traveling northward towards Temecula. To help pinpoint my location in travel at that time, it would have been closest to the next exit off of I-15, which was the Temecula Parkway exit on the right.

At that point in my travel, I was looking skyward as I was kind of up on a hill which heads downward into the Murrieta and Temecula areas, so I was higher up on the freeway, the hill, at that point.

All of a sudden I saw a silver, exactly round, shiny disk, high in the sky, very high up in the sky in the distance in front of me. The silver disk was stationary, no movement at all at any time while I was watching it, which was about twenty seconds, I'd guess. It was clearly visible the whole time.

It was high up in the sky, like about as high as the commercial airlines fly, but could have been higher. It looked smaller than the moon, in comparison to that. I at first kind of thought it looked like a very, very small moon, but it was shiny, which looked odd to me, so I kept looking at it. I’m thinking it must have been seen by many people, as it could clearly visibly be seen.

Then, all of a sudden, all I could see of the round silver disk was about half of it and it kind of looked sideways then, in that kind of way. I’m guessing it must have quickly turned sideways (and I’m just guessing that) and it was gone! It just disappeared out of sight. That quickly, it was gone! As I said previously, I didn’t see any movement of the object at any time, whatsoever, and I had constant clear view of it from my front car windshield the whole time until it disappeared.
