As me and my wife were driving down the road. I saw a light moving across the sky, I pointed it out to my wife. She saw it. Said " Big deal, it's a plane." I said, "It has no blinking lights".

We live in the Bay Area and have many planes in the sky. But this didn't look like a plane. It moved in what I think was westerly direction. And reminded of a missle launch from Vandenberg that a saw back in 96 or 97.

So I like to know if anyone else saw it too. I've seen satelites and shooting stars move across the sky; and this was neither. I suspect that it was man-made. If some knows for sure. Please let me know.
