observer is a commercial pilot driving along the interstate highway. Object first appeared as a bright light (like a highway lightspot of 1/4 inch) but moving from ahead of the car (about 2 miles) towards a right sidewindowview (also 2 miles) at approx 1000 to 1,500 feet altitude (sky was overcast 1,500 to 2,000 feet with rain).

Size was about 1 inch. Object moved at a steady speed in about 20 seconds from front of the car to the right rearwards out of side at a steady speed. Highway was full of cars so there must be more witnesses! The 50.000 inhabitants town of shertogenbosch was about 5 miles away !
