|Lantern looking light, hovered and shot up in sky. Other people noticed. With girlfriend.
It was 10:09 on my birthday and I was driving down Sarno road right next to Harbor Elementary. I just picked up a pizza and was driving back to my place. I was with my girlfriend almost home and I spotted something in the sky hovering less than a mile high up in the sky. It looked like a dim yet bright lantern.
I pointed it to her and she started to freak out a little and was like "wait...I think it's a remote plane" and I was like...no way.
As we went under it and went out of our view, we looked around and saw cars slowing down to look at it. After it got in to our view again (in my driver mirror) both my girl and I was looking at it and about ~5-7 seconds later it just shot up really freaking fast and just kept going up and went out of sight in about 7 seconds.
There wasn't a cloud in the sky.
