Location: Martinez, CA
Shape: Oval
Duration: 2 seconds
Large glowing ovoid descends rapidly west of Martinez, California.

I was in my home in Martinez and observed this object over the ridge to the West of downtown. I saw it through an open window (not through the glass). It came in from the south at 35 degrees from the horizontal. It traveled down in a straight line. It disappeared behind the ridge west of town. It was a glowing yellow in color. It was roughly ovoid in shape. It was the size of my little finger nail held at arms length. I got the impression (which might not be correct) that it was a large object quite a distance away (maybe 5 miles or so). It traversed roughly 10 degres of the sky before disappearing behind the ridge. After getting over my initial surprise, I jumped up and went to the window and observed the sky for another half minute, but saw no further activity. I would be interested in knowing if any other San Francisco Bay Area residents saw this object.
