Bright white ball of light south of Macon, Ga

On 12/11/2017 I was driving south on I-75 between mile markers 125 and 126 a little bit south of Macon, GA, at approximately 22:15 EST. I caught movement out of my peripheral vision and looked out the passenger side of my windshield to see a bright ball of light hovering just above the tree line. As I watched the hair on the back of my neck stood up and I got goosebumps up and down my arms. The ball was a very bright white light and looked to be about 50-75 yards away. It hovered over the trees for a couple of seconds and made a rapid (1-2 seconds) vertical decent into the trees. It didnít flicker behind the trees but kept the same brightness and solid ball shape. It looked to be between the size of a golf ball and a small tangerine at that distance.
