Report from MUFON:
Date of event: March 20, 2010
Location of event: Santa Barbara, California
"At approximately 8:15 PM PST, a group of three individuals witnessed a large, bright, white spherical light moving in a southerly direction towards the city of Santa Barbara. The individuals were facing in the southerly direction when they noticed the light at their 11 O'clock. The object emitted no sound.
Its size was approximately one eighth of the visible moon surface, and equal in brightness. It had no visible blinking lights. The individuals watched the object for approximately 40 seconds. From the viewpoint of the individuals, the object traveled from their 11 O'clock to 9:30 coming from out of a northerly direction.
The object then appeared to fade at the 9:30 position rather than continuing on a more "natural" orbital course. The location of the viewpoint is in the foothills north of Santa Barbara, between Hwy 154 and the 101 just off San Marcos Rd.
The skies appeared clear. The temperature was roughly 58 degrees Fahrenheit."
