Location: Chula Vista, CA
Shape: Oval
Duration: 1:40
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Slow Moving, Oval shaped, very low in the sky, and a very bright white, and it vanished...

I saw a slow-moving, oval shaped, bright white object in the sky. It moved App. NW to SE and it lasted about 1 minute 40 seconds. It moved then it made a sharp left turn then a sharp right blinked red once and vanished.

Also I am a student pilot so i know a airplane when I see one and this was not an airplane

((NUFORC Note: The ISS passed directly above Chula Vista at 20:53 hrs. on the date indicated, traveling from NW to SE. However, it would not have been "low in the sky," except during the early and later part of the event. PD))
