Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 30 sec.
Characteristics: The object left a trail
big bright light, shining backwards in the shape of a V, object was moving forward ver slowly.

It started as a point of light, slowly moving through the night sky. A "V" of light shone behind it, the "V" iincreasing in size as it moved forward. the light was a bright whitish-blue. After 20 to 30 seconds it "popped" (like fireworks) splitting into a momentary burst/shadow of in four sections, at which time the point of light (source) dissapearred and a very bright cone (and streak) of blue was left behind. I thought this might have been a very sophisticated flair, except it moved SOOO slowly and shined light in a very distinct "V" behind it only. Strangest thing I've ever seen.
