Very bright cobalt blue fireball over highway 101 near Minetta San Jose Airport

January, 2005 at approximately 05:30 AM Very Bright Cobalt Blue Light

I was southbound on Highway 101 near Minetta San Jose Airport when I saw a very bright, cobalt blue light in the sky. At first I thought it was a missile (I’ve never seen a missile) and that it was headed for the airport.

I was afraid, and so pulled the car over to the side of the road. The bright light suddenly leveled out, stopped and made a sharp turn to the left and disappeared. Its movement was definitely purposeful, it was not a meteor (I have seen many falling stars) nor was it a plane. Airplanes don’t travel at that speed, nor do they suddenly stop and make abrupt turns in mid air.
