Location: Columbus, OH
Shape: Changing
Duration:10-15 seconds
White light in clear sky, flickered then appeared as thinner chrome object, 10-15 seconds duration.

While driving south on Maple Canyon (about 50 yards north of the Dublin-Granville Rd intersection) I came to a stop due to a red traffic light. A flash of white light ahead in the clear blue sky caught my eye, at first thinking it was an airplane.

By judging the distance/height of the object, I would place it somewhere around 15,000 ft in the air, appearing to be about the diameter of 1.5-2 commercial airliners. The white light (circular/oval shape) became smaller (about half the size), returned to its original size, then with a flash of chrome suddenly appearing (as if turning or changing shape and reflecting sunlight possibly), a thinner flat shape became visible and without the white circular/oval light. While still stopped due to traffic I never lost focus of the object, but it then completely vanished.

No trails visible anywhere near where I witness the object, only clear blue skies. The duration of the event was 10-15 seconds.
