At approximately 7:20 pm on Wednesday 27 July 2016 I was driving eastward with 2 of my teenage children. A huge bright light appeared suddenly with both my son saw it at th same time. It was a similar size to a full moon I would be if it was especially close. The shape was like a 2/3rd moon where to other top 1/3 was black. The light appeared suddenly glowed for only a few seconds and vanished. At first I thought it was the moon that went behind a cloud. However when I stopped and got out of my car the moon was not in the same afraid the sky and it is a completely cloud free night. Not sure what we saw and cannot come up with any explanation. Definitely wasn’t a plane as there are no night flights here.
