At 5:10pm, going south on I-5 at the Folsom Avenue exit my girlfriend and I saw something very strange. She saw a greenish blue streak falling in the eastern sky. She said it disappeared for a second then turned white then it was gone. I turned the car around (I had not seen this). In the area where she said it fell there were helicopters and small aircraft circling the area, and a large cloud of smoke rising from the ground. We went in search of this area but couldn't find it as when we got off the highway buildings, trees, and growing dusk obscured any view of the smoke we would have had. Interesting note, there has been no mention of any sort of crash, explosion, or any other catastrophe that would explain the smoke and air vehicles in the area
