Duration: 1:00
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
smoke like obect in air looked like meteoroid.. other object was small movign in zig zag movements and no lights.

First my friends and I were in Old Town and we saw something that looked like a meteoroid that was leaving really shiny gases behind. These gases left an imprint in the air....We thought it might have been the military passing but then the object disappeared and the smoke or gas remained and lit up the sky. The smoke was white and then changed to an orange color. The smoke or gases lasted for about 15 minutes. We kept walking and 20 minutes later we saw an object shaped like a ball with, this object had no smoke or lights coming form it. It was moving from west to east over old town in San Diego. The object moved in a zig zag like movement and then started to either get smaller or higher until it totally disappeared. What was really interesting is that while the object was disappearing we could hear military jets passing by the location, probably to check on the object. If someone saw this could you please inform me. Thank you!
