EVENT (Object in the sky) Saturday July 5, 2014 20:16 -20:19 PM From Edwards Blvd in Westminster, CA, in a car traveling N. between Bolsa Blvd and Westminster Blvd.

In the west sky about 240 decrees west (approximate) Between 30 and 35 decrees high (approximate) Small bright (silver) missile like shape traveling what appeared to be upward but slow (My first thought a rocket from Pointe Mugu), almost looked like it was standing still.

I was looking for about 30 seconds for a trail but I didn’t see one develop till about a 45-60 seconds. It started getting longer slowly but almost imperceptible but definitely larger than when first spotted (very bright both tail and object).

Both my girlfriend and myself were wondering what it was. I said I’m going to video it, turned on my Iphone camera looked up and then it just faded or (dimmed out) to nothing. The fade or vanishing took about 3-4 seconds. That was it.

I suspected some test aircraft and sun reflection fading but I don't know.
