Strange light streak over Cotati, CA

At 5:41pm my mom called me and told me to look out my back window, which faces West. She was at the Costco in Rohnert Park and said there was a strange jet-stream in the sky that was glowing brightly. The sun had already set and when I looked out the window, I was shocked by how bright this was. It looked like a lasso in the sky. The oval was on the top right and it trailed down to the left.

It slowly faded over 5-10 minutes.

After looking online I found this was identical to the lights seen over Reno, NV, at the same time. However, I am in Cotati (very close to the coast - maybe 30 minutes) and I was also looking West towards the coastline.
