Location: Sacramento, CA
Shape: Other
Duration:45 minutes
About 9:30 P.M., 4/3/02, a large Y shaped, lighted object hovered south of Sacramento and west of CA Hwy 99 for about 45 minutes.

I saw a strange object from my patio at about 9:30 p.m. I could be off on the time, though not much. It seemed to be hanging in the sky some distance south of Sacramewnto, California and west of Highway 99. It was defined only by its lights, making it hard to tell its exact shape. It looked like a Y at first and then seemed to turn & become triangular, without changing its location. One light was pulsing, the others, in a row, were steady. The pulsing light was in front of the others and vanished as it turned. Even at that distance it looked very large. I watched it alone for about 20 minutes, going to the fence and looking between the posts to be sure it didn't move. Then I went to get a friend. We were back within 5 minutes and watched it for another 15 or 20. It was getting cold, so we went inside. I looked out again about an hour later, but a mist had closed in and I didn't see it. I left a message at the UFO forum & was given this site to try for a response.

I'd appreciate knowing if anyone else in this area saw it when I did.
