Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I was driving eastbound on I-80 at time of sighting. Sighting location is estimated, but I was certainly between Sharon and Mercer exits, but closer to the Mercer exit. It entered my field of view from top of my windscreen and disappear behind wooded hills. There were no flashes or fragmentations observed. Object was light blue and larger and brighter than any previously observed stars, aircraft or other manmade objects. Object appeared to travel straight down.
