While transporting a client, i was stopped at a red light on eastbound middlebelt road at the intersection of middlebelt and eight mile. in the sky in the distance, i noticed a bright, white, orb-shaped object floating. it looked kind of like the moon when it is still visible in the morning sky, but much brighter, even brighter than a star. the sky was perfectly clear and blue, with not a cloud present. it was there for about 3-5 seconds, and then it was gone. i asked my client if they had seen it, but their gaze was directed northwards, out the side window of the van. i looked back up at the sky and it had reappared just as bright as before, once again for approximately 3-5 seconds, and then once again disappeared as my light turned green and i had to turn left onto northbound eight mile.
