I assumed the huge ball of light shooting across the atmosphere was a shooting star, until it stopped abruptly. - Cumming, GA

Around 4:20am, I was headed north on GA400 towards my home. As I passed Exit 13, I noticed what appeared to be a shooting star. It was just a large ball of white light literally moving at lightening speed across the sky. So my first reaction was to make a wish, but as I'm watching it shoot across the horizon, it didn't disappear. It literally came to an abrupt stop, which completely startled me.

Then right before me on the highway I then saw what appeared to be an aircraft of some kind, hovering ahead of me. It had red and blue flashing lights...I really couldn't make out a shape...and thats when it registered that this was definitely something else out of the ordinary. A few seconds later, it shot off into atmosphere at lightening speed and disappeared.

Both objects moved entirely too fast to be anything logical such as a plane or a helicopter, or even a drone. In addition, the ball of light traveling lightening speed across the atmosphere and completely stopping, with a random hovering object then appearing...no explanation. Absolutely no explanation.

This weirded me out enough to actually want to report it.
