Reported: 10/10/1998 01:32
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Oakland - Near the Bay Bridge, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes+
While driving North on 880, we all thought we saw a falling star. I thought it was going to make it through the atmosphere and hit the Earth. Minutes later, we saw it again (along with 1000's of other commuters). It looked like a large remote control firework that was going East to West, occasionally disappearing and reappearing. I have no clue what this could have been, but it definitely was no airplane or helicopter. This was a vivid sighting by 3 educated, sober people. It was fairly large and looked as though it left a 100 feet of sparks behind it. Turning East-to-West unlike any conventional aircraft.
