Location: Simi Valley, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
The object in the sky at first appeared to be an unknown type aircraft with it's landing light on. The light went out and no red or green lights were visible. A minute later the light reappeared and repeated the same sequence. When it extinguished the second time it disappeared in a different fashion. It went out much like an aerial fireworks does...in segments, in an upwards direction.

There were four people in my car. My wife was driving. My 10 and 7 year old sons were in the back seat. I was in the front passenger seat. My wife told the boys that they had just seen a meteor. The boys told mom that meteors don't stay stationary in the sky and then fade out. I told my wife that I had seen the light disappear twice in a two minute period of time. We all decided to watch the news tonight to see if there was anything on the sighting. Unfortunately, we missed watching the news tonight. In all probability they would not have covered it anyway.
