I was driving north on HWY 101 over the hill from Peteluma to Cotati when I saw a green/blue orb pass in front of my car in the upper part of my windshield. It traveled west to east and disapeared out of my view over the town of Cotati.

This object first appeared to be a shooting star but normally when I those they appear high in the sky. This object appeared to be much closer to the surface of the earth. By this I mean possibly at the same height of a low flying plane. I did not at first think to do or say anything about it until I saw a news blurb on NBC for a later broadcast that people in the north bay had seen a green "comet like" object in the sky. This was at 8:00 PM only 30 minutes from the time of the sighting. I was eextremely tired from my day and missed the late night news. No reports in the paper this morning.
