|Huge Bright Moving Moon
I was driving home going west on us 92 towards Dairy rd in Auburndale FL. To Go home I make a right on Dairy road and turn right on Lake Ariana Blvd to go around the lake towards my home. While I was driving west on 92 towards Dairy Rd, I saw what looked like a very bright circular sign up ahead on the right side of the road. I take this route all the time at night home so I know all the business signs. I was thinking this was a horrible new sign because it was so bright that I couldn't tell what it said and that the circular shape wasn't a good idea. As I drove towards dairy rd on US 92, it started coming into focus. When it started coming into focus, it looked like it was the Moon just 20 times its normal size and not too far above the trees. It was huge and had craters, looked exactly like a large moon. I began thinking it was a super moon that I had heard of on the news and right before I made the right onto Dairy rd I slowed to take my phone camera out ! and take a picture of what I thought was a super moon. In the minute it took me to get my camera out, this huge moon had slowly and steadily floated down below the tree line where I could only see its outline glowing behind the trees. This is when it occurred to me that this was not a super moon. One the moon can't move that quickly and two at 3:22 AM the moon is not setting. I was scared and almost turned around but I couldn't see it anymore so I made the right onto dairy rd to continue home. When I got to Lake Ariana Blvd(the road that curves around the lake) I could see it had moved NE all the way across the lake in a matter of seconds. But now it looked much further away and like a glowing sun in the distance. I took two short videos of it while I was driving of it across the lake, and I will send them.
