It sped off at a teriffic speed, changing size and color.

When I was returning from a local disposal site, upon reaching the top of an overpass, an object caught my eye off to the left. It was hovered at a very low altitude appx. 500 ft. It was angled on it's side about 30 degrees, it's shape looked like a HIGH HAT. It sat there for about 2 min. Upon viewing it, it was black in color with a silver perimeter, it had a saucer plate bottom, inside of the plate was black and the perimeter was again silver. On the top hat portion off to the left side midway up, there seems to be a shape of a door, or a square window. The distance was 1 mile or less, it was about forty ft. across, and about 50 ft. in height. It sat in a southwesterly dircetion, when it sped off, it left in the same direction. As it left at a terrfic speed, it changed color to white, and size to a ball. The sky was all blue with few clouds, it left the atmosphere into the ionesphere and beyond within a mere few seconds. This took place in Santa Clara, Ca. I have seen other sightings more astounding than this one, dating back to 1967. The 1967 sighting was more detailed and astounding.
