Cylinder craft with green light appeared and dissapeared over radar satelittle dishes by 280 freeway

I was drivng south on the 280, about a few miles north of the Stanford exit near the large visible radar satellite dishes by the freeway in the early evening and was watching the spectacular full moon rise over the mountains in the background. It wasn't dark enough yet to turn my headlights on in the car as I was driving.

Instantly, a cylinder to cigar shaped object appeared out of thin air in my vantage point as I was looking at the very large profile of the moon. It was a few miles south of me, and about 1000-1500ft above the ground.

The grayish-reflective looking lomg narrow object (cigar or cylinder shaped) was moving in a slightly downward trajectory and moving at a constant speed towards the west. A distinctive green light was visible off the back of it. After 3 seconds from when it appeared it dissapeared in front of my eyes. You would of had to been looking right at it to notice it.

I am positive what I saw, and normal
