((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))

It is night time here so PM, and i estimate it half the size of the moon. Also it was all white and it looked to be some kind of fire behind it glowing like. I also need to correct the direction. It was traveling east to west. I apologize. I was somewhat rattled. It had just happened, when I reported it to you. Thank you.
