Massive illuminated bubble.

I live on a hilltop 5 acres, in an extremely rural area with a full unobstructed view of the sky. I am a serious, sober 56 year old man who loves staring into the night sky. This area has some of the clearest skies anywhere.

Last night while sitting outside, I happen to look towards the southern sky over the Burro Mountains and noticed a strange "bubble" of light that quickly grew into a massive translucent bubble through which I could see stars. This "bubble" was emitted by a slow moving, unblinking, noiseless craft that appeared as a point of bright white light, and was dwarfed by the "bubble". (More precisely, it was shaped more like a light bulb).

This "bubble" was softly illuminated but not by its source nor by the moon, which was absent. It was a crystal clear, cloudless sky and there is no light pollution here. The bubble could easily fit a dozen full moons within it.

The craft eventually disappeared from my view! and the "bubble slowly dissipated. The way it was illuminated reminded me of bio-luminescence as there was no external lighting source other than the stars. It was not dissimilar to the big bubble from the Wizard Of Oz.
