Between 1973 and 1977 retuning home from dinner with my parents between 8:00pm and 9:00pm.

I was lying down in the back seat passenger side gazing out the window at stars when I saw an explosion of light looking like a kaleidoscope in the sky. It filled the side window which was probably 18"x20". The light from the blast lasted probably near 20 seconds, with lots of color then slowly faded.

We were traveling south on monterey road in san jose ca. This occured nearly overhead yet somewhat off the west. returning home we called the mercury news and moffet naval air station to report.
