|white ball of light illuminated sky over Hwy 4
My girlfriend and I were traveling home eastbound Hwy 4 between Pittsburg and Antioch when we both spotted a white ball of light coming from the Northern direction and landing in somewhat of a southern easterly direction. While on Hwy 4 heading east it looked like whatever it was, landed somewhere I would estimate to be between Hwy 12 and Hwy 160. We assume it crashed/landed/exploded or whatever and illuminated the entire eastern skyline with 2-3 bright flashes of light. I thought at first it was lightening but funny thing. There wasn’t a single cloud out. We continued to monitor the sky on our drive home to Stockton and noticed as well several aircraft in the sky but we are more than certain these were normal airplanes. We were both wondering if anybody else noticed this since we were not the only autos traveling Hwy 4 last night. Could this have been a meteor?
