White Light Object appears in the sky and speeds away below the horizon

While driving south on Interstate 65, a bright light in the sky off to the left and up from the horizon about 25 degrees appeared.

The light was very distinct and vivid against the clear blue sky and no more than a mile away. It appeared to be hovering or just stationary.

There was no movement for at least 4 to 5 minutes before it accelerated incredibly fast to the south, where it suddenly made a 45 degree turn toward the east.

It disappeared below the horizon.
