Silver Ball in Sacramento Sky (carmichael) 07/06/01

I stepped into my back yard and noticed something in the sky. It seemed to be a round ball that was just hovering there and rotating. as it would rotate I could see black and then it would turn and be completely silver and very shiny! It seem to hover in the same place just rotating for about 5 to ten minutes, then it almost seemed like it started either fading out or disappearing into the clouds. It didn't look like anything I have ever seen. I know it was not some type of balloon or known aircraft. It looked perfectly round with nothing attached to it. And it was shinier than anything I have ever seen. When it would rotate to the black side it was not solid black. That part is hard to explain. lol. And just to add it seemed to be rotating slowly. I also forgot to add that there did seem to be an aura or haze around the object!
