Characteristics: The object landed
Light that zipped, down, right, and down to the ground

We were palying touch football in a neighbors yard, it was evening, but still light.

Someone said look at that! When i looked i saw a light in the sky. It dropped downward, then over to the right, then down to the ground? This was on Bolster Street and the UFO was about 5 miles away in what is called Evergreen, a wooded place next to the bay.

I know of nothing (human) that could move that fast. It was zip,zip,zip.

We were all astounished and would never forget it.
