|Intense white ORB moving parallel to ground at constant speed spotted in Kennesaw, Georgia, moving parallel to highway.
My daughter and I saw an intense pure unblinking solid white orb streak along the Western side of Route 575 headed N parallel to Route 575 as we drove to Exit 4 on the northbound side, in Cobb County, just south of the Cherokee County line.
It was quite low in the sky, roughly at my 10:00, very bright, self-illuminated, and moved in a straight line apparently north, and apparently parallel to the ground. It moved at a constant speed, exhibited NO deceleration and apparently never deviated from its straight-line course. It was shockingly bright against the dark sky.
It disappeared behind the tree line across the road after a few seconds. It left a very slight after-image or light trail in its path, which may have been a visual artifact due to it being so bright against such a dark sky.
It moved way faster than an aircraft, but seemed too slow for a meteor. It also appeared to be quite large, even at a perceived distance of several miles. In the distance, it was about two mm in diameter, and round.
My view of it was perfectly clear and vivid. I was driving 60-65 mph and it blew past us like we were standing still. It was over way too fast to get a photo.
My daughter, who was playing with her phone also caught it out of the corner of her eye. It was bright enough to get her attention even though she was playing a game on her phone. She looked up and asked what it was.
I was in the car with the radio on, windows up at highway speed and the object was at a distance, so I cannot make any report as to sound or lack thereof.
