Shape: Unknown
Duration:75 seconds
A light in the sky flying in a zigzag formation that disappeared after a minute or so.

Tonight in San Francisco, I saw a bright star in the Southern sky just to the right (west?) of Orion’s belt. It was too far away to see the shape but it was brighter than most stars in the sky, and it’s a clear night tonight. It was moving West in a subtle zigzag formation. After about a minute it slowed and started to get smaller. It became dimmer and dimmer until it disappeared, all in about 15 seconds.

I’m not sure what it was but it did not look like a plane, nor did it move across the sky as a conventional plane would fly, and there are lots of planes in the bay area sky.
