Blue-gray glowing object moved very fast and disappeared.

On April 10, 2013, my husband and I, in separate cars were driving east on Interstate 10 in Redlands, California. He was about a minute to 90 seconds behind me. The time was about 9:12 p.m. PDT.

Despite fairly heavy traffic around me, I noticed a very fast-moving object heading from north to south above the eastern horizon. It was just above treetops from my view. It was not fiery or bright like a meteorite, and it was far too fast to be any kind of aircraft. It glowed enough to be visible, obviously, and was dull blue-gray.

The size was very hard to judge, since I don't know how far away it was. Compared to the planets, it was larger than Venus but not bright. It did not leave a trail.

Its path was straight. I lost sight of it after perhaps 3 or 4 seconds.

My husband had a clearer view from a higher point on the freeway. He observed the object for 4 to 5 seconds before it disappeared on the horizon. His impression of it was exactly the same as mine, the dull gray-blue, the flat trajectory. He said it might have appeared smaller in size when it disappeared.

On land, from the point where he first noticed it to where it vanished is a distance of about 15 miles.

I pulled off the freeway and parked to watch the sky, and he pulled in a minute later. I saw nothing else unusual. He was glad I had seen the object, too, so I didn’t dismiss it as a light reflected in his car’s windshield.

I have not been able to find anything on the web about similar sightings at that time.
