Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
Bright light in the sky then dims out and vanishes as it moves south and east

A very bright light came from West Northwest and as it disappeared towards the East Southeast it quickly diminished in brightness until it could no longer be seen. It had no flashing lights.

Much lower in the sky an airplane was passing simultaneously whose lights and flashing lights could be seen. The plane could be heard, but was slightly behind the glowing object which had passed first and silently.

It was very large and I suppose it could have been the international Space Station if it was passing over San Francisco at that time, otherwise I cannot image what it could have been. I just looked at the ISS tracker and it is considerably to the south of our location along the equator and did not pass overhead in San Francisco in this last orbit.
