It appeared to be a very bright star that was hovering over Travis Air Force Base, however it not only went from very bright to very dim numeruos times , but it was also moving at various speeds and seemed to have a very strange flight pattern. It stayed in the sky for a very lenghty amount of time( long enough for me to loose interest). Later that nite either the "same" object or an identical one (also sharing the odd manuverabilities as the one just discribed) was in the South sky, moving very slowly than dissappearing.

A very bright light that glowed a bright red to a very vivid golden yellow color, even an almost white light. Displayed brief instances(lasting anywhere from 45sec. to approx. 1 minute) of intense brightness, than would suddenly fade very dim, to the point that it would appear to be a distant star. It would stay stationary for lenghts of time, than would move very slowly from side to side and at one point even disappeared briefly just at the edge of the the hills, than suddenly appeared again. At around 2am (2nd sighting) the object displayed all the chararistics as just discribed, but after several minutes of watching it, it suddenly just disappeared. An interesting note; during the second sighting there was an aircraft in the very same vacinity as the ufo during that time, in fact the air craft flew extremely close to the object, but didn't show any unusal interest in the object. The 2nd sighting I wittnessed alone, where as the 1st sighting was observed by my boyfriend.
