Silver/chrome round object paralleled my bus for about three minutes.

On the morning of December 5th, I got on my school bus and sat toward the back on the starboard side, facing the other side of the bus, looking out the window. Riding across a long stretch of road, I was looking at some early morning stars. However, I realized there was only one star, and it wasn't before long I realized that it wasn't a star. It was an object which was reflecting the sun, above the valley.

I noticed that this object was not far away, paralleling the bus. I noticed two white lights on the lower half of the object. When the bus came to a stop, to pick up another student, I was shocked about what I had seen. I thought the object would keep coasting along, but, it stopped along with the bus, and began to merge forward, toward the bus. When the bus picked up again, the object stopped moving toward the bus, and continued to parallel it.

his went on for about three minutes, and because no one else seemed to notice the object, I kept to myself. I made an attempt to get a picture of it with the camera on my phone, (a two Megapixel camera, built in) but this bright object failed to show up on my screen, or in snapshots.

Later on the bus ride I had noticed more lights. But I realized that these were street lights or building lights behind me. So I made an attempt to debunk what I saw earlier, but I had no such luck. These lights not only reflected and moved the opposite way of the bus, they were too low of a reflection on the window. Anything higher would have been blocked out by the bus roof, or the window sills.

Again the object before had distinct two lights on its lower half, and was chrome/metallic.
