Location: Santa Barbara, CA
Shape: Unknown
Duration:5 minutes
It seemed like it was in orbit but was way too big to be the space station. It was moving towards the WNW over Santa Barbara, CA at a constant rate and was orange in color. It also appeared that small whitish specs were falling off the sides at irregular intervals. At least 3 planes were visible at the time to compare for size and shape, and this was not a plane.
