Shape: Sphere
Duration:20 seconds
Extremely fast glowing object, flying very low to the ground, very close to us and very silent.

This time driving west on 118 towards Simi Valley just past the Topanga Blvd off ramp we witnessed what appeared to be a fire ball flying parallel to the 118 heading East at an incredible rate of speed, at least a mile every 3-5 seconds.

My wife and 6 year old were amazed as it flew towards and right by us. My six year old called a shooting star. My wife knew it was neither airplane nor helicopter it was so fast and silent.

We pulled over and watched it cross the entire valley towards the 405 interchange in a matter of seconds and vanish as it blended with the lights of the city. I saw an amber glow, my wife and son believed to have a more blue/white color. I am color blind and may have a different perception of color.

Simple math tells me this object was travelling at least 500 MPH maybe over a 1,000 MPH and no more than a 1,000 feet above the ground.
