Bright Light Streaks Across The Sky Seen Over The Bay Area Northern California

Date:  January 17, 2013
Time:  5:20 a.m.

I saw a bright light streak across the sky this morning at 5:20 a.m. in the bay area northern California.

I've never seen anything like it. Bright like lightning and left a streak in the sky that faded slowly like over 10 seconds.

It was amazing. It happened so fast I could not tell what direction it traveled. The fading line was amazingly perfectly straight. Regards.

Additional Information:
Yes it does sound like one. (meaning meteor as I suggested it could be) I have seen them my whole life. This one was so intense with such a long lasting trail that I was in shock.
I was afraid Mt Diablo was about to explode or something. It was so bright and big and fast I thought to myself no way that was a meteor.
I don't spook easily. This was spooky. Thanks. Glad to share with someone who cares!
If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.

Also, please feel free to send in your sightings that have happened years ago. So many of these older sightings are nothing short of amazing.

  2. My husband said he saw the same thing this morning on his way to work. He saw it at approx. 5:20 and we live in Lincoln Ca which is just north of Sacramento (40 miles). He said it lit up the sky and was amazed at how bright it was and how long it lasted.
