Object enter triangular light, then light pinch shut.

I was walking west on Alvarado-Niles Road in Union City, Ca 94587.

Just past H Street walked into a darken area and looked up at about 1:30 postion looking SSW at a rough estimate height of about 30,000 feet.

Weather condition was cool crisp air with cloudy sky with patches of clear area.

Heard nothing unusual, but saw a large solid whitish-yellow triangular light that seems to be origninating from the left side. Then there is a dark gap, then the light is seen reflecting off a small cloud bank.

As I watch the light is motionless for approximately a minute, then I see a tiny dark object enter the triangular light and head toward the left vertex of the triangular light. After the object reached the left vertex the triangular light closes up in a pinching fashion.

Could not see any object in the left vertex of the triangular light.

Could not see any objects at the approximately 30,000 feet altitude after the triangular light pinch shut.

There were a couple of aircraft flying around heading in a westerly direction, but they were really low compare to where the triangular light was.
