Location: San Diego, CA
|Blue light/object sped across the sky- San Diego, CA
I was driving southbound on the 5 freeway near the Sassafras Exit. I was talking to a friend on the phone who was also driving southbound on the 5 freeway but she was a few miles north near the Grand/Garnet Exit. I saw this low flying blue compact light shoot across the sky going in the southwest direction and disapper into the clouds/fog. My first thought was that it was a helicopter and I thought how it was close to the flight pattern of the San Diego Airport and that was pretty dangerous if it was a helicopter. As I was having this thought my friend who I was talking to on the phone said, "wow, I just saw a shooting star or something" and I of course shreaked and said I saw it too and then we both realized it could not have been a star; it was too low and too fast and too big and it could not have been a helicopter since we saw it almost instantaneously and I don't think helicopters fly in that area due to the airport.
