>In late 1994 or early 1995, both men were at my friend's $
>house in Thousand Oaks, CA. It was late afternoon and    $
>sky was clear. The father spotted a fast moving, high    $
>object and pointed it out to my friend.                  $
>                                                         $
>My friend said that the object was moving from southeast $
>to northwest. It was high and appeared to be climbing.   $
>He said that, although it was high, he could see a       $
>shape. It had either a delta or elliptical outline and   $
>appeared to be changing shape. He also said that it was  $
>metallic in color, had no contail, and crossed half of   $
>the sky in only four or six seconds. His father estimat- $
>ed that the object was moving at mach 3 or 4.            $
