Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:2-3 minutes
I saw a metallic sphere very bright almost like a star, but it did not pulsate and it was daytime very clear skies. It appeared to be glinting off the sun or reflecting light,similar to the look of a metal ball I was driving south in SF,CA. It appeared about 35-40 degrees above the horizon straight south guessing about 3 miles near Daly City,about 400' in the air.

It was initially stationary,became smaller as if it were moving away south, then darted left and right,and disappeared. I was able to gauge the lateral movement because I was looking through overhead utility wires.

It wasn't a plane a balloon a helicopter or a bird, because the velocity of the movement was too swift. It made me very nervous. I was about to call out to a pedestrian but by the time I did it was gone.
