2 truck drivers heading south on 101 coming from santa barbra and santa maria area sawl object flying at great speed it was the most britest flurencent green we have ever seen.it came from over the ocean heading east over us but in front of us.it seemed to have hit on the other side of the mountain or on the top of the mountain. we were about 1/2 mile from the exit of seacliff exit when this happened.the size was about half of a moon falling and landing within seconds.it either landed high on the mountain or just on the other side of it the mountain.this was at 1:11 am we thought we sawl a glow of the mountain horizon after seeing it hit or land somewhere on that mountain. it diffently hit or landed somewhere up there.the object was round as far as we could tell but the brite flurscent green was so brite it was hard to tell if it was a different shape other then looking like a fireball but it was like looking at green fire thats the only way we can try to tell you and it was flurscent very flurscent!!!!!!!!!
