Location: Newark, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 seconds
Bright light moving in sky for about 3 seconds before burning out?

Driving home from dinner, I looked up. A bright light caught my eye: slightly brighter than the two airplanes in the sky.

The bright light moved fairly quickly: it covered about 15 degrees of arc in about 3 seconds.

I saw a (much smaller) spark fly off of the light, then the spark faded out.

The main light itself winked out while it was in the air.

I heard nothing; I was in my car.

I have no idea what it was. It seemed too fast for an airplane, but too slow for a meteorite.
