Location: San Gabriel, CA
|Comet looking object appears and fades over southern California sky.
The object, which appeared to be a bright light in the South/Southwestern sky, was slowly travelling East. The unusual part about it is that it left a broad trail, appearing to look like a comet, but was obviously moving too fast to be one--not that it moved very fast, but a comet does not make progress across the background of the sky at a measurable pace in a minute.
