UFO over San Francisco during eclipse 10/26/04

I was viewing the eclipse tonight from the steps of St. Mary's Cathedral facing Gough Street in San Francisco, when a light passed overhead traveling very fast southwesterly and disappeared near San Bruno Mountain. It was higher than the many planes flying around, about 2000' (?) and moving very fast. It dissappeared abruptly. I could see that it was orb shaped from my view, and solid white. No blinking lights or anything resembling an airplane. Not a balloon. It was large, maybe more than double or even 4 times larger than a plane.
