10JAN2014 Mark San Jose, California about 6PM
I was standing near Aborn and White Road near the foothills of East San Jose, California.
I saw an unusual meteor in that it was like a fat car on it's side pushing down into the atmosphere with lots of sparks, not unlike a fireworks type of effect. It was fat. Then, it stopped quickly and I believe it was going in a trajectory of Yosemite, because it was not going at all toward Alum Rock Park but maybe 100 or 200 miles over about 30 miles to the East of Mt. Hamilton.
Because of the unusual, fat sparkler like effect, I think it could have been some kind of space junk put there by man. But not sure.
