Location: San Jose, CA
Shape: Other
Duration:5 second
White dot in sky seen streaking twice in opposite directions over East San Jose foothills. Observed from South San Jose. The angle in the sky was somewhat shallow, at 20-30 degrees.

First object was a small white dot travelling at high rate of speed to the south toward Gilroy. It could have made the trip from San Jose to Gilroy in 10 to 20 seconds which would make this speed ±6,000 to ±12,000 MPH.

A minute or so later, I see what appears to be same object at lower altitude this time (maybe 30,000 feet) travel north along foothills. Same speed. Observed both objects for about 3 seconds.

Too fast to be a plane. Highly doubt this was a bird as it was so far away and traveling so fast. I estimate the object was 10-15 miles away from my vantage point.
