Location: Gilroy, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
The light was falling straight down out of eastern sky. The light was extra bright like a planet in summer. This thing moved really slow. Once it stopped going lower, then it started to move east and got brighter. After about 30 seconds of moving east, it dimmed and disappeared. My wife and I just went out to walk, which I turned on the sprinklers. I checked to see if my wife was clear of the grass, which is when I seen it in the sky. Amazing scary and kind cool. I wonder what it could have been. It was close to the flight pattern into san Jose, but thus went directly back into it quickly. Plus, there were no indicator lights. I know my commercial planes, this was not a plane.
