Location: Brentwood, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Bright Light fades away within 30 seconds.

January 9th, 2011, at 7:10-7:11 pm I exited my garage which faces East and looked South at about a 30 degree angle up And saw a very bright light. It was as if a spotlight were trying to get your attention, It was that bright, brighter than the brightest star in the sky by about 10 times.

I exited the garage and walked in that direction, by the time I walked past 3 garbage Cans, (the recycling, the yard waste and the actual garbage can) it started to fade… It got smaller then within 2 more feet it had disappeared. There were no stars in That area, and it was totally dark. I called my husband to tell him at 7:13 (as noted On his cell phone) and even then, still total darkness, no stars.

About 4 minutes later I saw a small plane fly east to west in the same area, definitely Looked like a plane, had a blinking light and was flying slower than this object Disappeared. I have never seen anything like this.

My location is Northern California, Bay Area.

Thank You.
