A light blue streak in the sky around 8pm. Meteor movement like. Odd color.

hello, i live in San Jose, Ca. back in march 2000, i saw something in the sky that was different from anything i've ever seen. it was night time and i was on a regularly busy freeway, Highway 101. i didn't catch it at first because it looked like a glare on my windshield. but i started to notice that it didn't move. it looked like a light blue, squarish streak. like thrust or something but in the shape of a parallelogram. it's like taking a light blue hi-liter and positioning the tip at 2 o'clock, then draw a short straight line. it wasn't thin like a shooting star, a bit more thicker. it was stationary and solid in color. when it finally did move, it was slow, but then moved like a meteor/shooting star at a high speed horizontally accross the sky from left to right on my point of view. after it acclerated, it disappeared. it was very hard to tell if the distance was within our atmosphere, or something in space. but it was definitely there. i heard from friends that there is a missle test sight in the area. but all my 20years of living here, i've never heard of one. i was suprised that it wasn't on the news or anything, because it was around 8pm or 8:30pm and there were plenty of people on the freeway. and plus there were at least 4 aircraft/airliners in the area during the time. i don't have any pictures because i was driving, but i remember it well. i clearly saw it. it might've been a meteor, but what makes me question it is the shape of it.
