I was driving home from work on a busy road in huntsville al. my recollection is that it was in may 2017, but cannot recall exact day. driving north i observed a brilliant ball of light to the right (east) of the road a few feet and about 80-100 ft high. at first it appears to hover, then slowly moves north. i would have normally turned west at a major intersection, but i was so fascinated that i decided to continue to drive north. the ball of light seemed to move north. the next thing i remember is being about two miles further north and the ball of light disappeared. then i took an exit and headed home as usual. the reason i continue to think about the incident is the almost hypnotic brightness of that light. it was as strong as an electric welding arc....Yet it was in the sky during daylight and moving! my feeling about the whole thing was fascination and confusion! i am an experience aviation observer and very slightly involved in astronomy. this was nothing i have ever seen before. was it some military exercise? possibly. it was close to an active army base, so that may be the explanation.
