Location: Hayward, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
SF was dark, bright light split into two lights, both travel off in opposite directions, both disapear at different times.

Walking out the door to go meet my wife, I spied an unusual bright light in the sky. I am very familiar with the night sky here, and the normal forms of air traffic, and I instictivly knew this was out of the ordinary. 15 seconds into the sighting, the bright light split into two separate lights, one moving off in an approximate south bound direction, and the other moving in an approximate north bound direction. The speeds seemed very slow, almost as if they were sattelites, but they were definelty at a lower altitude. The north bound light disapeared suddenly at about 1 minute into the sighting. At this time, I broght the south bound object to my wifes attention, and we both observed this light traveling across the sky slowly. It was traveling in our general direction. At about three minutes into the sighting, the object was observed to dim greatly in an instant, but was still observable. It then was observed that the object appeared to move straight up, and instantly disapeard. This was no normal sky traffic, and to top it off, it all happend at the same time that San Francisco went dark for their annual "Lights Out San Fransico" event, where much of the city's lights went dark for one hour. This sighting left us shook up, and slightly frightend.
