Duration:5 seconds
Sept 6 2001 4:50 a.m. Contra Costa co. Ca Looked like shooting star but right to left.Slight left turn before gone.

Went outside to view early morning stars in southeast sky when I saw what looked like a shooting star but was moving right to left instead of the typical north to south plunge.Before in vanished as shooting stars do,made a slight left angled turn.(kind of rules out the shooting star theory)Local news station reports bright green and yellow lights in the sky that night witnessed by many.Strange thing is Channel 2 news reports it as a meteor at 9:00 p.m. or so.My sighting occured 4:50a.m. next morning. If anyone else saw what I saw let it be known.
