Location: Arlington, TX
Shape: Sphere
Duration:~30-45 minutes
Large white orb with glow around it in south west Texas sky.

As I was backing into my driveway I noticed what I thought was a seasonal planet that was just unusually close to Earth, it was very large, close to three times the size of the North Star for reference but with a glow around it as If it were in fog perhaps.

I blew it off until I walked outside a little later and it was gone. It was very clear out which why I found the glow around it to be odd. The light was fixed without any movement, round in shape; and very white in color.

Peter,

When I saw the object in question I was facing south west, what's very curios about what I saw is the fact that my girlfriend of many years works for a major airline, one of my best friends is a professional pilot; and I live near one of the largest airports in the word so I know what an approach light looks like.
Good stuff!!!
