location: Sunland, CA

date: 1982/83, summer?

time: 9-10PM

sighting: Looking north from side of garage 
one night after raking up the yard I saw a
 faint star-like light "descend" in a zig-zag 
pattern, something like the floating leaf motion 
others have described for some UFO's. The light 
source appeared to drop behind mountains 
above the Tujunga Canyon area.  Duration was 
at most a few seconds, but it was not a meteor, 
aircraft, rocket or satellite (I've observed plenty 
as an amateur stargazer and former aerospace 
engineer).  The light did not blink or create any 
trail but went incredibly fast.  The visibility was 
very good, and I am far-sighted.  I thought 
it might possibly be an insect lit by ground lights 
except it looked far away and the intensity did 
not change noticeably.  The direction was toward 
Edwards AFB, from where I sometimes could hear 
sonic booms from space shuttle landings.  
However the light was soundless.  Never saw 
anything like it before or since.
