Location: Sacramento, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:15 MIN
AT APPROX 2300HRS, I NOTICED A YELLOWISH ORANGE LIGHT MOVING SLOWLY FROM SOUTH TO NORTH, IT STOPPED AND HOVERED FOR ABOUT 15 MINUITES BEFORE SHOOTING STRAIGHT UP INTO THE SKY.

I WAS WORKING AS A SECURITY GUARD FOR A APARTMENT COMPLEX IN SACRAMENTO CA. I WAS ON PATROL OF THE GROUNDS WHEN I NOTICED THIS LIGHT IN THE SKY HEADING FROM SOUTH TO NORTH, AT FIRST I DID NOT GIVE IT MUCH THOUGHT BECAUSE THERE WAS ALOT OF AIR TRAFFIC DUE TO AN AIR FORCE BASE TO THE NORTH AND FROM SOUTH TO NORTH WAS PART OF THIER APPROACH TO LAND. BUT THIS WAS DIFFERENT FROM THE AIRCRAFT THAT I WOULD SEE ON A DAILY BASIS. THIS HAD NO RUNNING OR FLASHING LIGHTS LIKE AND AIRPLANE. IT WAS JUST A YELLOWISH ORANGE PULSING LIGHT THAT WAS MOVING LAZILY THROUGH THE SKY AND THEN STARTED TO HOVER. BY THIS TIME A FEW RESIDENTS NOTICED ME LOOKING AT THE SKY, AND OBSERVED THE SAME THING. WE WATCHED IT FOR APROXIMATLY 15 MINUITES AND THEN IT SUDDENLY SHOT SRTAIGHT UP INTO THE SKY UNTIL WE COULD NO LONGER SEE IT.
