Duration:7-9 sec.
Shining double moon sized object falling in angle slowly from sky.

I was driving in my car with my friend and I saw a double sized, whole-moon dimension, shining like thousands of little, multi coloured lamps on it object. Moving slowly, from right up to left down, in 10-15 angle of incidence to the horizont, without any noise.

The place where we saw it was like a V, between two mountains, the road was in the bottom of it. The object moved on in this V seeing angle in aprox. 7-9 seconds. We watched the object until it disappeared on the left side of the V, behind the mountain, and we didn’t observe any other noise or light effect after. It was falling like a star, But!!! It was very big, and moved very slowly.

I know airplanes, satellites, I watched them a lot, but this was totally different. As I think it was at an 1-2 Km distance from us. Or it was further and it was enormous with very high speed.
