|I went outside this morning to have my coffee on the porch about 4:30 and off to the west was a huge white luminous sphere I assumed was the moon because it was so large. After sitting there a few minutes I noticed it was a little smaller than a normal moon and had no dark areas so focused on it and was then I realized it was moving off to the west-northwest. I mean this thing must have been huge. If I had to guess I would say it was maybe a thousand feet high but am really not sure. From it's path it must have passed very close to my home so I wish I had gotten up a little earlier. I watched it for a good 5 minutes slowly disappear toward poplarville.
About two or 3 years ago I was coming home from work after midnight when I had a similar experience while driving down the road. This was very short in duration, lasting maybe 10 seconds, but was an identical luminous white sphere shaped object and about a quarter mile away traveling in the same direction as myself. This UFO was trailing a tail of white fire behind it, which was maybe 3 times its length and the same width as the sphere. It had clear crisp edges and was well defined in the dark sky. I would judge its size to be slightly larger than a quarter from my prospective.
