Shape: Light
Duration:1-2 seconds
Extremely bright circular light shooting horizontally in sky and disappeared as if flying behind something in clear night sky.

As I was listening to a friend talk to a group of four of us, I saw a light as bright as the full moon but smaller in size, which was about 1/8 the size of the moon, travel in a perfectly straight line horizontally across the sky and disappeared into absolutely nothing. There were no clouds and the moon was full and bright. The light traveled faster than any airplane and was not a shooting star. There was no tail or lagging light behind the object. The size of the object was so large it could never be misinterpreted as an aircraft. The manner at which it disappeared into thin air was a complete mystery. I have never seen anything similar to this, and matter of fact have never seen anything other than aircraft and an occasional shooting star a handful of times. As I yelled “Did you guys see that?” I actually startled everyone because they actually did not see what I had because it was behind them. This is definitely a little scary, mysterious, and totally unexplainable.
