A moon-sized circle of bright white light, like a mirror reflecting the sun by tilting, appeared in the distance

I was driving towards the Kansas City metro area on I-35, several miles West of Olathe. There was a full moon rising in front of me and a little to the right, and the sun was getting lower in the sky behind my left shoulder. I noticed a configuration of ball-park miles ahead of me and to the right of the highway, with lots of trees, etc., in between. As I was looking towards the ballpark lights, with the full moon upwards of it and to the left, DIRECTLY OVER the ballpark in the sky appeared, from nowhere, A BRIGHT WHITE CIRCLE OF LIGHT that was the same size as the moon. It was extremely bright, like a huge circular mirror reflecting the sunlight, but it did not hurt my eyes and it did not glare. It just "tilted" on and then, after a second or two, it "tilted" off. I compared it to the size of the moon, almost precisely. It really gave the impression of a big mirror tilting in the sun, or a "portal," which opened for me to see. I looked at the passengers in other veh! icles nearby (it is a double highway) but I saw no indication that anyone else saw the UFO. I was awestruck by this sighting since there is no way it could possibly be explained in any conventional way.
