Shape: Circle
Duration: 4 seconds
Large round light came from above in one smooth 3-4 second movement, then disappeared. My husband thought it had a “tail,” but I did not see one. It was right in front of us while driving westward toward Gunnison after sunset. We were less than 10 miles from Gunnison.

By “large,” I mean too big to be a shooting star or an airplane light. I thought it might be a meteor but the “burn out” wasn’t quite right, and the size and shape didn’t really fit either. Meteor might explain it though--hoping other people saw it. I guess I would say it was like an oncoming headlight, way up in the sky, coming slowly. No cars were on the highway with us at the time (we checked,)
