Bright Object Hidden by Clouds, Fog in California

... bright white part was about as bright as the moon

Westwood, California - 09-12-14

Shape: Light - Duration: 30-45 seconds

Bright light surrounded by clouds or fog

I was walking my dog at a little after 6:00 am this morning (9/12/14) in Westwood area. I happened to look up towards the western sky and saw a strange light glowing behind what looked like vapor or fog--kind of like what a jet looks like when it's coming in for a landing in fog.

But it wasnít really moving.

There was some movement to it, but very slow. The bright white part was about as bright as the moon, and about half the size (the setting moon was also visible quite a bit to the left and higher in the sky).

As I watched it started to dissipate, then the light went out and there was a strange oblong 'glow' or vapor remnant left for a few seconds, then nothing at all visible where it had been. And there was absolutely no sound or noise associated with it.

The entire event lasted maybe about 30-45 seconds. I tried taking a video with my cell phone, but it doesn't really show much and I wish I'd just tried taking a photo.

I am an artist though, with an excellent visual memory, and went home and drew in pastel what I remember it looking like both when the light was bright and the vapor after it went out. I also did another drawing in pencil.

I'm interested in astronomy; I have seen comets, fireball meteors, planetary conjunctions, eclipses--this is like nothing I've ever seen before. Like I said it looked like a jet coming towards me in fog, or like the top part of the moon peaking from behind clouds. It was weird and fascinating to see.

The air was perfectly clear and afterwards during the walk I even saw a small plane, a helicopter, and a low flying jet headed west --and they looked nothing like what I saw; they were all crystal clear in view--no halos, vapor, etc.

From what Iíve found online this morning a lot of others saw something similar. I sent an email to CBS news about it. Some others reported it to a radio station.
