Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Cigar
Duration:10 min
My husband and I were sitting on a bench at a marina in Berkeley CA looking across the Bay at the skyline of San Fransisco (SF). There was some generalized fog and there was a cover of clounds above the city. We observed a very dark cigar shaped object move repetitvely back and forth from one end of the city to the other, occasionally dipping into the clouds but never decending below the cloud cover. The object did not appear to be movong fast but it was covering considerable distances in a short amount of time (moving back and forth acros the city in appx 45 sec). The object was signifaclty larger than a plane or helocopter as it appeared in relation to the city scape to be longer than the width of two buildings. The movement, shape and speed was not consistant with any modes of air craft with which I am familiar. The nearest airport is located some distance from the city. We observed the object for appx 10 minutes during which we noted an intersting cognitive phenomenum in which as we ruled out aircrafts that were consistent with our contextual schemata, we became increasingly aware of the unfamliarity of the object. We would be interested in kowing if there were any other sightings in this area.
