Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-5 sec
Fireball from the center of sky moving SE , perhaps falling downward. Faster than a plane but too slow for a meteor

The object looked like a meteor but moved slower than normal. No change in direction though. Very bright like a star. Lasted about 4 seconds and briefly went "out" then back on and then ended abruptly. Most likely a meteor or other common object. Many planes were on approach to SFO so it was likely reported by another.
