Duration:30 seconds
long ovel shape flying in the sky over Santa Barbara

We were looking in the sky and saw a shape like a bird with a full open wing span about 30 - 40 thousand feet high. It was moving from north to south cost.

What caught our attention was that it was a lighter blue than the sky with a very slight glow to it on the out side. It never changed shape through out the duration of the sky we could see so it was not a bird and moved at least 3 to 4 times the speed of a boeing 747 at full flight.

There was no aircraft lights or sounds from it. So what could it be?

It was so quick that we did not have time even to record it because it was across the sky within 15 seconds.
