|Dark, swift chevron-shaped craft with bright "headlight" over East Bay, CA
My eyes were drawn to a very bright "star" on the northern horizon. I thought it was a star because it remained in the same position for over 8 minutes. But it was too low on the horizon to be a star--and far too bright. After about 8 minutes, it began to move to the left, and kept approaching until it was nearly overhead. Looking directly up at it, it flew by--very quietly--and had a chevron/boomerang shape. It seemed to be going east of where a plane would be going (to either SFO or OAK airports). As it passed, I could make out smaller lights--I can't remember whether they were colored. It was a clear, warm night with many stars visible.
