Strangely behaving Light in the early evening

While driving on hwy 120 going from Discover Mills Mall towards the town of Lawrenceville, a light caught my eye which behaved very strangely. Firstly, it was not a dot of light. It seemed larger, and palely lit. It was circular. It went up like a flare, and behaved very much like that, however, this was clearly not "Fire." It was just a pale round lit up object. What happened next was what was strange. It shot off away from me and across the horizon like a meteor.

I’m hoping someone else saw this, and had a better look at it. I’m guessing there is a normal explanation for it, but the last time I saw something like this was a large meteor, and it was clearly just that, and had pieces of it coming of in the tail.

This behaved in a similar manner, but with no tail, or fire-like characteristics whatsoever. I only saw it for seconds, but it seems like it went up, then off in a different direction. Very strange.
