Large round glowing yellow fireball traveling at a high rate of speed, then suddenly stopping and disappearing

At appproximately 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 29, 2008, I had just left Reno, NV heading eastbound on I-80 towards Elko, NV. A large perfectly round glowing object caught my eye as it came into my field of vision above me in my front window of my car heading the exact same direction at an extremely fast speed. At first I thought it was a falling star beacuase of the speed that it traveled across the sky, but then I realized it was traveling way too low and it was way too large, and it was glowing yellow not white as typical of the falling stars I have seen often. At that point my mind told me it must be a meteor but here was absolutely no trail behind it. Then it came to a sudden halt but never diminished in brightness, and then just totally became invisible, like it turned its light off. I got I weird gut feeling like this was something I could not explain. Everyone in the car was freaking out because they were all equaly scared. The only other time I had this feeling was in Seattle ,WA in May 1977 at approxiamtely 9:00 p.m. when a small craft the size of a small car followed our car full of five people through a road with tall trees on both sides just floating behind our vehicle, you could see it in the rear view mirror. It was a typical saucer like design that consisted of four rows of glowing windows. Our car died in the middle of the road and we were not able to start it for about a minute. Everyone was hysterical and terrified. Just was curious if anyone else saw the Reno meteor/light in the sky?
