Duration: 5 min.
I was driving south 301 just coming out of LA PLATA MD before Preference Estates looked up and saw to the left of 301 slow moving firey shaped object. It was dark on top but on the bottom it looked like it was on fire moving very slowly from the left of 301 to the right.

I drove to the north side of 301 to get a better look because it was now over the trees. I would say the distance from the ground to the object was the distance that you would normally see a small plane fly.

The object came to a complete stop for a few seconds, about four cars stoped at that point. Also I would say the size of it was about the size of a car. It totally disapeared because of the trees. I then drove south on 301 to try to find an open area without trees after that I did not see it anymore. The estimated time frame of the sighting was about five minutes.
