Location: Berkeley, CA
Shape: Oval
Duration:5 sec. ???
Large oval, moving slowly across building line, emitting extreme bright light with a tail of vapor.

Driving in car along Gilman st. when an extremely bright light appeared in the sky. After blinding me it seemed to head in my direction which made me flee the scene. The light had the intensity of an arc weld and lit up the entire street. There was absolutely no sound as it drifted a couple hundred feet in the sky. I returned to the location minutes later and it was gone. Interesting that the power had then gone out in the area. I ask people in the location if they had scene anything but all had not. I tried to reason that it was a transformer but it was very uncharacteristic of an electrical explosion since it was so constant. I it was overcast and rainy at the time and this object drifted below the cloud cover. Anyone see it?
