Location: San Jose, CA
Shape: Oval
Duration:5 minutes
Cigar shaped object, could be blimp, over east foothills of san jose,( calaveras reservoir area) during afternoon commute.

Seen above east foothills during commute going north on 880. Initially thought it to be a traffic copter given its size. It remained in apporox. the same location while I drove, instead of gaining on it it remained just above the hills and size unchanged. 5 minutes elapsed going 70mph on freeway. assumed it must either be the Goodyear blimp or the 1 zeppelin airship that does bay area tours out of moffet field.

Never witness either of those crafts in that area in the past, it's unlikely airspace for either craft. It finally dipped out of sight behind hills before I could pull over and view it with binoculars.
