UFO sighting in Santa Rosa, California.

UFO SIGHTING At approximately 2340 hours, I was heading east on College Ave (on way to grocery store).

Suddenly a light appeared, like a bright shooting star.

It fell quickly across the sky.

But it never disappeared.

It kept going, and going.

Iím thinking: When is this going to disappear? But it moved like it was being driven, like an airliner that is going to crash because it is moving too quickly to land safely.

To listen for the crash, I rolled down my window.

It got so low to the ground my view was blocked by buildings.

Just before it would have gone out of view, it changed direction and flew in a straight line, no longer falling. The direction change was an L pattern, parallel to the ground.

It flew away from me, same direction I was heading, and disappeared.

(After it was gone, I watched an airplane that had been in the sky the entire time, moving at a snailís pace and dim compared to the light).
