Remarks I was driving. All of a sudden i saw this bright light quickly enter my field of vision on my right hand side. It was really fast. It left a trail that i could see really bright because the sun was setting. It was toward the west side. I saw that something continued to travel to the ground ahead of the trail. It looked as whatever came down landed on the hills of Vacaville or farther west.
