This morning at Approx. 10:00 AM, as I entered a Clinic in Downtown San Francisco, I noticed a rather unusual object exit from a area of a Apartment Building at 1394 Market Street, a High Rise Building across from Twitter HQ. I observed a rather Silver Colored Flying object, which could NOT have been a Bird, in Jerky Motion, fly Out & Away from the Building, Not Hovering, but seemingly getting ts Bearings" then, with what appeared to me, [ as a former Model Remotely Controlled Airplane Enthusiast] similar to Radio Remote Controlled Aircraft.
I had a Nikon Point & Shoot Camera, but could not have caught the Silver Flying Device, the Sun being contrary & the Rapid Take off.
The devise at a point of approx. 15 Yards Out from the Building then Very Rapidly Gained altitude above the Roof of the Building, and orientated itself to a Northern Flight Path and was Quickly beyond vision.
The "Towers" Apartments [I am not naming it] is Quite Tall, and the Area where it departed from, is a Rather Tight enclave on the North Face, which is the Rear of the Building.
I am Former M.A.R.S. Member, Amateur Radio since 1958, and C.A.P. member in High School, have a Broadcast Radio Engineers FCC License,  and worked several years as a "Steeple Jack" in Kansas, Arkansas & Texas, [Climbing TV & Radio Towers to Change FFA Clarence Lights & install Antennas/Hard Line Coax.] I am, at 63 Years, a Constant "Looker-Upper," to coin a phrase.
I did take .jpg photos of the Building which shows the Enclave from whence came the Device, and exhibits the Height of the Building.
I thought it was perhaps a rather Sophisticated Drone, but I am absolutely certain it was Not a Bird.
