Driving north I saw an object the size of a 3/4 full moon with a tail traveling east to west, 45 degrees up in the sky, and approx. 1/2 mile in front of my car. The object was very bright like a shooting star.

I was driving north and saw a flash to my right (east) the flash was a bright white round "fire ball" type object that had a tail. The object was about 45 degrees above my horizontal plane, and appeared to be just above the tree tops (I was driving in a pretty deep vally). The object moved from east to west, was visible for approx. 3 sec.
