Huge green glowing cigar shaped craft observed flying at treetop level over Sunnyvale.

I am not sure of the year this happened.

I worked swing shift at Hewlett Packard and my boyfriend and I were driving on Hollenbeck Avenue at 23:30, just after leaving work.

We pulled over and stopped when we saw a huge glowing green cigar shaped craft hovering at tree top level parallel to Hollenbeck Avenue. It looked larger than a football field and had no windows visible, just a medium green glow all over. It made no sound, and was not a blimp.

We were shocked to see it over a heavily populated area and watched it silently fly over the houses.

The next day it was all over the news, and there was an article in the San Jose Mercury News paper. The radio news reports said that although it was near Moffet Field Air Base, airbase personnel said it did not belong to them and they could not identify the object. It was seen by many people.
