Location: Berkeley, CA
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
i have 20/20 vision. it was a clear day in berkeley. i was lying in a lawn of the university watching planes from oakland airport flying over. i saw a small flash very high up, perhaps as far out as something in orbit. the object continued to flash about every half second. it was much too high for an airplane or any jet i have seen. it moved slowly accross the sky flashing a white light every half second that was visible in daylight. it wasn't sun light that made the flash-it did not change in quality regardless of the position of the craft and the flash was metered rather than one long continuous reflection or a series of random ones. i watched it for about 3 minutes. finally it seemed to move farther away from the earth and i could see it no more. it was not an airplane
