Location: Paris, KY
Shape: Light
Duration: seconds
Intense silvery white light/orb appearing in front of a large cloud in Paris Ky.

It was approximately 7:00pm and I was driving east on the Paris bypass (US-62) headed to work. It was getting dark, and there were large cumulus clouds in the sky. On this particular road, there isn't much but countryside, farms etc, everything is pretty open. I was trying to keep my eyes on the road, but I was also paying alot of attention to these amazing huge white clouds in the darkened sky. Amazing scenery. At one instance, I looked back up at this big cloud out to the right side of my windshield, and an intense ball of silver white light just appeared. It burst out in front of this cloud. Out of nowhere. It was not a star, and it wasn't a plane. It was a round intense ball of silvery white light that stayed in the same place for a few seconds, then it slowly took off to the left a short distance and faded out. Like it went into the cloud. A white car was in front of me, and they had to have seen it too. The distance of the object is hard to determine. From my perspective It was about he size of a dime right beside this huge mid level cloud. Very bright.
