White light over San Francisco Bay observed from Downtown Oakland

While driving in the south direction of the 880/980 freeway (MacArthur Maze area), I noticed one bright white light in the sky. The light was southwest of my location, approximately 45 degrees from the horizon. The light moved down quickly and disappeared in less than a second. The light was lower than the fog cover. It moved much much faster than any other air traffic that was in the area. Other aircraft observed were a helicopter and planes landing/taking off from the Oakland Airport..
