Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Perfectly round, a white light - it started out initially across the road and maintained the same size as it floated in my direction but stayed to my left . If you held a basket ball at arms length in front of your face - it seemed to be that size and remained the same size whether it was farther away or closer to me. Never changed perspective or size- no sound and moved slowly but steadily as if floating

Full Description & Details
I am an Rn and had worked a 12 hr shift- driving home at approx 7:30 pm - I was stopped at a traffic light at the corner of Gaskins Rd and Springfield Rd in Glen Allen Virginia. I was the 3 rd vehicle in line to turn left onto Springfield Rd. I was watching the traffice approaching from the other side of Springfield Rd ( Gaskins Rd turns into Hungry Rd once you cross Sprinfield Rd) it was beginning to get dark so cars had their headlights on. There was a dip in the road and I could see the light from the headlights before I could see the vehicles come up out of the dip in the road. All of a sudden a light which initially appeaared to be a headlight came up from the dip in the road and continued up to just above treetop height - it was a perfectly round disc of white light no sound and it never appeared to change dimension as it moved. I remember thinking to myself "what IS that? " I started to track it w/ my eyes and it floated in my direction but remained to my left . I was aware of the radioplaying in my car but almost felt I was in a trance like state. When this object got to a point where I would have to move my head to keep it in my line of sight I briefly looked back at the road to see if the traffic light had changed ( it had not) so I turned back to continue watching this object and it was gone- in just those few seconds. I turned back to look at the cars that were stopped next to me to see if anyone else gave any indication of having seen this object- noone did . I wish I had written down the date - I think of it often and would really like to know what it was .
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
no it was something i have never ever seen before or after - I have told many people about it and I remember it like it was yesterday
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I was open to the possibility - this was really odd - I was alert, oriented and awake- under no chemical or alcoholic influence ( had just gotten off from work and was driving home) not particularly tired.
