Basketball sized ball of light, about the same brightness as a flood light flying low and slow.

Driving east bound Friday November 10 at 6:13am on highway 285 near the intersection of S Sheridan Blvd and Highway 285, I looked to my left (north north east), and there was a large ball of light. The ball of light was approximately the size of a basketball with a dark core, the majority of the light coming from the outer edges. It was moving too slow/low to be an airplane in this area. It was significantly brighter than anything I have ever seen in the sky (while flying or on the ground). If holding an object at arm’s length away to cover the object, it would be the size of a basketball. It looked like there were multiple lights on the outer edges of the sphere when looking at it. The color was a bright white with the middle of the orb a darker color. There looked like there was an aura around the object, I'm not quite sure how to describe it. It looked like when you can see the heat around a hot oven after opening it. The middle was not black but there was significantly less light coming from the middle. When I grabbed my phone to take a picture of it, it became significantly smaller and dimmer before it disappeared. It was light outside when this happened and I could not see an object in the sky when it disappeared. This happened within 1-2 minutes. I make this drive everyday Monday-Friday to go to work at this same time each day and I have never seen this or anything similar before.
