Location of Sighting: San Jose, California
Date of Sighting: April 1, 2016
Time of Sighting: 6:30 AM PDT
Description: Early morning hours about 6:30 AM on my way home from dropping off my mom at work I noticed something very strange in the sky. I asked my sister to take a picture of it. Then when I got home I noticed another object that at first I thought was an aircraft releasing fuel. But then it started getting bright red as it streaked downward. I thought that the first thing in the sky was odd, but then the next meteor was strange on top of that? Attached you will find the photo that I took from that morning. It was over the mountains behind our house close to the James Lick Observatory.
I thought maybe you heard or someone also reported seeing these in the sky.
Note: It is difficult to identify the red streak in this photo. I would attribute it to light scattering from atmospheric particulates as the sun began rising in the east over the mountains, but the witnesses claim to have seen objects descending. The photo could be of a meteor. There were no known rocket launches in the area at the time.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
