On the day I made this observation, there was not a single cloud to be seen in the entire sky - a typically beautiful Colorado day! As I drove south on highway 287, between Berthoud and Longmont, Colorado, I noticed a craft quite a distance ahead in the sky. It caught my eye because of its brilliance. Initially I thought it must be the sun reflecting off an airplne. However, though craft moved across the sky; unlike sun reflecting on an airplane, the nature of the brilliant light did not change. It then briefly appeared to glow even brighter and expand to a larger sphere and just disappeared. It never appeared in the sky (the entire sky before me)again. I frequently observe aircraft which reflect the sun at this high altitude and the nature of the light reflected changes as the aircraft moves - this do not do that.
