Location: Hayward/San Lorenzo, CA
|Clear skies this evening, stars twinkling and no marine layer over the entire by, an absolutely georgeous fall clear sky day and evening. At time of sighting stood just a bit of pink over the pacific ocean, otherwise you could say its dark. With a lit of air traffic coming into st and Oakland international airports, typical for Sun at th8s time. As usual you can see 7-10 planes lined up awaiting their landing approval. This thing was brighter, bigger, more in the distance, looked as if it was surrounded by smoke or fog by the way the light beams were hazy, again we had a pretty good air quality day and the stars and planets didnt appear to be fogged or any smoke haze. When I noticed it wasn't moving but 8t light beams were, I looked around to see if anyone else was seeing what I was seeing. A familiar fella in the neighborhood seen it along with myself and I belief a person at a bar located across from Walgreens also stepped to the street whereas there was a perfect view without building obstacles. IT appeared to be possibly a get drop but square more like an exclamation mark, or 1/2 how turned to the side, the lights were very bright. When I first noticed it and compared to the air traffic in the skies, it as evident this wasn't a drone, not an airplane, and superman I heard is on vacation right now. The lights went from 3 white beams pointed down, gradually opened to a 5 pt beautiful Star like shape, trust me, I began praying, I thought perhaps the Bethlehem star, it was huge and beautiful, then the 5 pts came back to 3 beams again but pointed upward now then quickly went to 2 beams still pointing upward before it went wooosh, vanished in thing air and appeared as if ashes were falling from sky where it had been. there was a lot of air traffic, theres gotta be someone up there in an aircraft who seen it also. I sure hope im not the only one reporting this incident.
