Location: Palm Desert, CA
Shape: Other
Duration:5-10 minutes
Saw a luminous yellow-green color craft, with external white lights. It was quite large. It was low on the horizon, so low that it wasn't visible at times behind the trees. it travelled fast, but slower than an airplane, from East to West. I estimated it to be over Interstate Hwy. 10 or a few miles N. of it. I saw it first from my residence for a few seconds, then behind trees, then visible again. I drove to Country Club Drive and saw the glowing object heading west, becoming smaller and smaller, until the "glow" disappeared. It was shaped like a flattened football, and appeared quite large.
