Location: High Point, NC
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 seconds
Bright light spotted in High Point NC over lake.

(Sorry for submitting this twice, I realized I set the date to today, and not Monday, on accident.) I was arriving to my step fathers house at around 9 PM EST, and I looked up to the sky above his house, which overlooks some semi-tall trees and leades into a lake.

When I looked above, I saw a flash of light that stayed in the air for a good few seconds. The light descended slowly, much larger than a plane and more slowly than that, until it disappeared behind the house.

My mother was with me, but she didn't see it, as she was taking bags out of the car.

It was large, about the size of the moon, but much brighter.

As it descended behind the trees I tried to run around to the back, but it was already gone.

The shape was nearly perfectly circular, but I describe it as a fireball because of the hazy outside of bright blue along with the white center.
