Location: La Mesa, CA
Shape: Flash
Duration:1 second
Fast moving object blue white light nighttime only visible for a second.

I was out on my balcony, smoking a cigarette, when I saw a flash of blue-white light which was traveling from east to west quickly pass overhead. I saw it for only a second, or possibly even less.

It couldn't have been more than a few thousand feet overhead, but it was hard to tell due to the fact that it was only visible for approximately a second.

As far as I could tell, it was a single object.

I have no idea as to the shape of it, since I only witnessed a flash of blue-white light.

There was no sound. And I quickly stood up to try to get a better view. By that point it was gone.

I've lived in this area for about a year and a half, and I'm quite used to the normal police helicopters, border patrol helicopters, commercial airline planes, and private planes that move around the skies in this area; as well as the sounds they produce.

This was like nothing I have ever seen before, and the fact that it produced no sound is what really made the hair on the back of my neck prick up.
