Location: San Jose, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:12-15seconds
Light traveling at very high rate of speed across the morning sky.

The early morning sky was crystal clear. No clouds or ceiling present. A light moving at an extremely high rate of speed entered my field of vision from the north- west quadrant of the sky. It continued at a rapid pace at an even altitude for approximately 12 to 15 seconds before it left my field of vision as it headed in a southerly direction. My first impression was that it was a shooting star. However, I am perplexed as I have seen many shooting stars before and they have never been that clear nor have been flying in such an even pattern. There was no discernable noise and the luminosity of the object was in fact very similar to the brightness of the stars in the morning sky.
