|the object first appeared as a star. A blue line somewhere between a meteor tail and a long rocket boost appeared from it. Suddenly the blue thing turned into a perfectly straight and square orange bar. there was also a metallic disc under it that faded in and out of sight.
At 1:45AM this morning a friend and I were driving down Ventura Blvd in Encino. We saw an object in the sky that looked like a star. Suddenly a long comet-like tail appeared behind it. It was long, thin and very bright. Instantly, it turned from a blue tail to a perfectly square and straight bar that was mostly orange. At times, the point of light looked as if it had a very smooth metallic object below it. The light and disc were almost surreal. It faded in and out as if maybe it was bordering our visual spectrum or something. As we were driving from Encino to Woodland Hills, it shifted position in relation to us. It moved from in front of us to behind us in that 10-mile drive, meaning that it must have been very close to us.
