Location: Van Nuys, CA
Shape: Circle
Duration:a few seconds
Bright light, 3 or 4 times the size of a star hovered, moved slowly, and then accelerated to an astounding speed till it disappeared.

My boyfriend and I were driving back home in Van Nuys, when all of a sudden a little bit after 5:30, we saw a circular, bright light about 3 or 4 times the size of a star facing west. It stood still, almost as if hovering for a second and then slowly started moving farther away from us. In about an instant it accelerated to a speed I have never seen any object move in my life and it disappeared just as quickly.

It was very dark here in California and what we saw was very clear. We live by the airport so we are used to seeing planes and we can differentiate between the two. At first we thought it was a shooting star however, we have never seen a shooting star that big, or one that could move that fast in speed. I have never seen a meteor, so I cannot compare, however I do know that I have never believed in UFO's until this day.
