Location: Medford, OR
Shape: Circle
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Huge, round, white light hovering over freeway overpass

I was traveling south on an I-5 freeway overpass through the downtown area of Medford. There was a huge circular white light above me to the left, not too high above the treetops which lined the side of the freeway. It appeared to be the round, flat, glowing white bottom of an object, and I could not see the shape of it above the bottom surface. It was just sitting in the sky, unmoving, unblinking. I estimated it to be the size of a football field, large enough to hold a neighborhood of houses. There weren't many cars on the freeway, and they, like I, were continuing down the freeway, unable to stop. I don't know if anyone else saw it, and because of my rate of speed, it disappeared out of my view quickly. It certainly could have been there longer than 30 seconds, but I could not look back because of traveling on the freeway, and could not stop because there is no shoulder on the overpass.
