SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) –
At a time when the Bay Area was blanketed in Christmas lights, said the air on Wednesday the show.
Bryan Louie told ABC7 News, "It was brighter than normal clouds, especially at this time of night."
Still 100% certainty, but evidence grows the object seen feteor. Meteor can create very high level clouds of the noctyluc cloud name. @ NASA A great website explains the formation of the cloud. https://t.co/eDquECamLl #cawx

There was a mysterious light in the air after 5:30 p.m., a time when most make their way home from the work.
"It looked like a key almost," Louie went on to describe.
Dathao Becker was visiting the Bay Area of San Diego. He told ABC7 News, "I thought it was a kind of strange wonder."
"I thought someone tried to spell something in the air, but I can not read what it was," said Aparna Sarma to ABC7 News. "So I have just moved on with the rest of my night."
However, the mysterious light spreads on the thoughts of others.
Sky7 flew over San Francisco when it got this bright light.
Ransom Soderberg, Palo Alto's resident, told ABC7 News, "I saw a mobile cloud, then it's been a question mark. I do not know, maybe it's a sign."
Sign of where? Or rather, by whom?
"I am certainly a great believer in the UFO phenomenon," said Elizabeth Matuzak. "I definitely think it's UFO."
Although we're working to learn exactly what it was going to do, or what we say, visual, ABC7 can control a few things out: a planned rocket launch at the Vandenberg Air Force near Santa Barbara was covered and it did not happen. Also, Space X's launch had not planned either.
According to the Lick Observatory – a bright meteor was visible in the air over the Bay Area shortly after sunset this night, leaving a bright path that was visible for several minutes in the western air.
KABC, our sister station in South California, reports to the director of Griffith Observatory, Dr. Edwin Krupp, said the light was a bolide meteor that went to the atmosphere of the Earth. Krupp said the meteor could be fitted in your hand but what people saw it was the compressed air of its room.
Many people on social media have posted photos of the unknown light:
