|the light appeared as a meteor at first then slowed and decended toward ground level.
It was 1145pm and I was driving west on interstate 40 and throughmy windshield there appeared a light much like a meteor. At first I thought it was a meteor until the object slowed and changed directions toward the ground. When it slowed, I knew it wasn't a meteor, because meteor do not slow from and enormous speed and then curve toward the surface of the ground. The event lasted app. 10 seconds or more and I lost sight of it because of a tree line to the west. The object appear out of the west and after it speed suddenly decrease it move toward a northwesterly direction. The object was as bright as the planet Venus in the morning/evening sky.
