very bright white ball in the eastern sky viewed while eastbound Pa turnpike at 7:03am December 16,2006.

My wife and I were driving east bound on the Pennsylvania turnpike. the sun was just coming up and the sky at the horizon level was a deep red. Further east ,where the contrails originated,were erratic as it moved west. at this point we noticed a very bright light,like a burning magnesium ball, moving west and the up and then as if it burned itself out but only to reappear again as a white ball and then again burn itself out. The contrails were white against a red background and were there for quite a while. We were driving from Cleveland,Oh to Johnstown Pa when this happened.
