Driving to work on HW 680, today, I and a friend who was in her own car saw an irridescent green streak, very bright against the blue sky It was more or less straight across, and bright enough to get our independent attentions. Ilistened to the radio, but no one reported it, surprisingly. My friend said she saw the same event twice in the sameplace in quick succession, I only caughtthe last event. The streak came from nowhere and an object appeared, also green and then faded, (not reducing in size apparently) distance could have been in orbit or very high up. I have previously (in the last few months at different times, again travelling on HW680) twice seen bright blue balls of light descending at night towards Moffet Field direction-don't know if that is something they were doing (Nasa Aimes is there too) I have often seen shooting starts (meteors) but nothing even remotely like this. I am a CEO of a small telecommunications company (Engineering background), my friend is a Director of Montessori Academy.

Driving on 680 south at 9.00 am 8-25-99, both I travelling in my car and my friend who was on the same freeway heading the same southerly direction saw something in the bright blue sky above and slightly south of us. I noticed a green (bright light color)streak, but instead of the streak disappearing into nothing it became more intese and bigger resulting in some kind of object. The object was green for 2-3 seconds and totally vanished. My friend said she saw exactly the same thing, only it had repeated twice. I only saw it the once. I have seen glowing blue balls before descending quickly in the Moffett Field/Nasa Aimes direction. his happened several months ago, I did not report it then. I am now very convinced that soemthing is going on. Note the object got bigger after a trail, not the reverse which would suggest a meteor perhaps. The object appeared last, and from the distance could have been any shape, the duration was several seconds, but very very bright and very observable for anyone with good peripheral vision on the freeway.
