Duration:Two Minutes
I was driving down Lido Lane in Livermore, California, driving northwest. Something caught my eye that at first glance looked like a street lamp from atop one of those long poles. However, when I looked again, I realized it was not attached to any pole, so I looked very closely at this object. It was suspended in the air - not moving. So immediately I began to see if it were a blimp. It was not. It was gigantic. It was a metallic dark blue on the top two thirds of it with black gigantic rectangular picture type windows on it where the narrow part of the rectangle was at the top and the long part was down the sides insetted into the craft a bit. The bottom one-third of it was a silverish-grey color with no markings. The object was shaped similar to a street lamp and tilted down slightly toward the ground. It was about a mile off the ground, but seven miles from my location. It was huge. Everyone on highway 580 must have seen it. I drove my car to an area to so that I could view it better which was about three minutes later, I saw what appeared to be this craft 'shimmer' for a second and disappear right there in mid air. No movement was recorded and no sound was noticed at this great distance. I drove to the nearby airport to see if there were any blimps of that kind in and around that area and viewed none. I drove a distance of seven miles looking for this craft, to no avail.
