Ball of Light Buzzes Burbank Airport

I was outside on break having a cigarette. I've always looked up to the sky when outside as I am the child of a Air Force Lifer. I looked up and a bright white ball of light flew right over the top of my head at about 3000 miles an hours. It was about 500 feet in the air, and simply massive. Not only did I see it blow by me clearly, but I also heard a whoosh of air as it blasted past. It was headed east and blew right across the burbank airport. This thing flew across the San Fernando Valley in clear sight. It brought goose bumps all the way down my back. I remember thinking how advanced the craft was. Like nothing we have in our Air Force or NASA. I also remember thinking as it scared the hell out of me, "What the hell are they doing here?" I mean, this thing was so far ahead of us, we're like, not even ants to whoever has technology like that. The vessel was silent. The only noise was the whoosh of air. Another guy was sitting there at the table outside, and I said, "Did you SEE that?" He said, "See what?" You wouldn't have even needed to be looking at the sky for it to catch your eye it was so bright. Okay, it looked like it was made of white glass. It was I estimate, at least 100 feet around. It glowed from inside the white glass walls. Like a flourescent bulb in an office ceiling, only a huge ball instead of a cylinder. Now, as I was out there every night taking my breaks, I used to watch the 707's and DC-8's coming in for their landings at burbank airport. I saw hundreds of planes come down from there. I know how fast they glide along the sky on their descent to the runway. This Ball of Light crossed the sky, at least, 10 times faster than those planes come in. I should also note that the very next night, I was listening to Mr. KABC on the radio, and some guy called into the show and reported seeing something buzz the Santa Monica airport. His discription was quite different than mine, not even close really, but two airports buzzed on two nights in LA, with two different types of U! FO's? Very strange.
