Shape: Light
Duration: 6 seconds
Extremely bright light.

While driving east on 495 close to little River Turnpike, I noticed an oblong shape 100,long light. The color was white and it was extremely bright. The light was a half mile away and it hovered at about 500 to my left. The light did not move at all. Everyone in the vehicle saw it. My dash camera was not on so I plugged it in and looked again and it was gone.

The light was very strange. Even though it was extremely bright it did not illuminate any of the trees under it.

I have been on Army, Navy, Marine, Coast Guard, and Air Force bases, and I have never seen anything like it.
