I was heading South/East on the 101 Ventura freeway, climbing over the Calabasas pass, approximately 0.5mi from Parkway Calabasas exit. At about 45'F above the horizon towards the south side of the freeway, I witnessed what I could tell from a distance to be two bright and steady green & white lights. Whether they were eminating from one or two objects, I couldn't tell. But both were "falling" very very rapidly, with the green light dimming low. The white light remained and disappeared out of my sight behind the mountains to my right. I suspected a fireworks or flare, but flares flicker or would leave smoke or trail. What I witnessed looked bright and clear. I also suspected a falling star, but what I saw was definitely in vicinity. I can also rule out an airplane or helicopter, since this thing was traveling so quickly, seemingly at a lower altitude, I had never seen anything like it. I am also quite sure that many of the commuters crawling up that freeway witnessed the same, since one of them actually popped out his head to look. Please share information on this site if you saw something similar in the vicinity during this day/time.

As for my background, I am a 31 y.o. male, working as a project manager at a nearby corporation.
