Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Oval
Duration:4 seconds
Oval object crossing the sky at incredible speed turned bright red-orange then went straight up & out

It was christmas eve and I went outside to smoke a cigarette it was cold and crisp out and the sky was so clear I was admiring the clarity of the stars I noticed a plane very high in the sky you then I noticed a off white oval object that was traveling in a different direction above the plane and was moving 50x faster than the plane I kept focusing back and forth to the the plane then back to oval object because I could not believe my eyes but each time I would look back and forth I knew the oval was not a plane at first I tried to rationalize it as a shooting star but I knew it wasnt and then I felt fear for what I was seeing I continued to watch it travel in the sky from a southwest-northeast direction then all of a sudden it changed color to a very bright red-orange color that made it look much much bigger and in a split second it changed back to off white changed directions sharply and went straight up and out (away)faster then when traveling across the sky and dissapeared, I ran inside to tell everyone what I saw I was still in shock/panic I thought I needed to call and tell/report it to someone but had no clue who. I always thought it would be really cool to see a ufo, I have always been nutral on the subject neither believing or dis-believing their existance but instead of being cool it was rather a little traumatic, whenever I think about it I can see the whole thing like it was yesterday I remember every detail and I know I will never forget what I saw.
