Location: San Jose, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 min
Bright light traveled at a great rate in the upper atmosphere above Santa Cruz mountains CA

We were on our balcony looking to the northwest towards say Camden and highway 17 junction when in the uppermost portion in the sky about 70 degree angle a very bright light appeared and traveled at a very fast rate towards the southwest.

It was very bright with maybe a small tail but too far to see clearly. It was not a shooting star nor space debris, it's light was too bright and how it dimmed as it got further was to real.
