We drove to the old base and there was open skys with two or three low scattered clouds. Could see SF and bridges clear view of big dipper and moon. We saw two regular planes and could follow their lights through the clouds, and the ufo was in open sky. My friend is a expierenced flyer and saw object first. We were in car crossing webster st traveling west on santa clara. my friend says it was a fully illuminated flying boomarang.
