Posted: 4/8/2002
Location: El Cerrito, CA
Shape: Light
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
green light of varying intensity, speed and direction

One blue-green light of varying intensity--most of the time a faint greenish color, but occassionally becoming bright like one of those glow sticks, was moving about in the sky. It was approximately 30 degrees above the horizon. I had no ability to judge its distance from me, so it was impossible to say whether it was a small object within 1000 yards or miles away. It finally dipped below the treeline out of sight. My elevation was approximately 420 ft above sea level, and the hills occluding the object were higher elevation than myself.

Its movement was odd--varying in direction and speed. There was little wind where I was standing, at the park on the corner of Barrett Avenue, a block down the hill from Monta Vista.
