Shape: Teardrop
Duration:20 minutes
East San Jose - Large metallic object with lights hovering and moving slow across East foothills

The large object appeared from behind trees in the distance (approx. over Eastside San Jose) and hovered for about a minute. It was moving South to North along the East foothills. It moved extremely slow and would stop and hover from 30 seconds to a couple minutes each time. Looking through binoculars - It was a teardrop on its side – round at front and pointed in back. It was illuminated in front half – I could see metallic reflection. The back end had red, blue/green, and white lights. There were other aircraft in the area that were clearly smaller as if they could fit inside this huge object. When they looked like they might be going towards it the large object would brighten and flash 3 large red lights in triangle formation. It travelled into my site and travelled out behind trees, poles and houses. It had to have come from Gilroy area (South) going North towards Oakland/San Francisco.
