Silver oval object.

My two daughters and I were seeing my wife off to work, just a few moments ago. We were standing in our driveway, as she was backing up the car.

As she left, my daughters and I turned around to see a silver oval object hanging in the air. It was low enough to be very visible.

I could tell this was a rather large object and from where I was standing, it seemed to be hovering above the 710 freeway which is just a few blocks away from our house.

The object hovered silently in the sky for about 5 min. and suddenly went straight up in the air at a super-fast speed.

There was a mist or vapor that came off the object as it sped into the air, this vapor rapidly dissipated, leaving no trail.

It made no sound. My youngest daughter was actually frightened and I had to calm her down. My eldest daughter thought it was pretty cool...as did I.

My two neighbors who were standing above us on their second floor balcony saw the object as well. I asked them if they knew what it was, the Brazilian men said it was a UFO, and they used to see similar objects in Brazil.
