Washington, Virginia (United States)

Source:

I was driving south on 95, the sky was very dark. I saw a white orb appear ahead and to the right (1 o'clock position). When it appeared it was streaking downward so I thought it was a very large shooting star, but then it stopped suddenly and disappeared. Full duration was about 2 seconds. It seemed to be about a quarter mile away and the size of a mini van. Very bright. Definitely in the sky and not something on the road I mistook.
