Location: Anaheim, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
A bright star-like white light suddenly appeared around 8 a.m., a dark shaft appeared hanging down from it, then vanished.

I was facing N. in the east Anaheim area. In what seemed to be in the far N. (Simi Valley?) area, at high altitude in a clear sky with low-lying clouds (not far from sunrise) I was watching the sky and a bright white star like light appeared, as if Mars times 10 in brightness. It seemed to move slightly south before a dark rod appeared to hang down from it, about 7 times the height of the star-form, then abruptly vanished.
