Duration:3 minutes
Sept. 1, 2002 4 am at Sacramento, CA ....At 4am my dog started barking so I got up to see what was going on. On my way back in I glanced up to the sky as it was very clear that night. There it was; a "cruising star". Very bright like Jupiter but it did change intensity as its' altitude seemed to change. It was not a satelite, I've seen many. This UFO went slow then jumped, seemed to climb in a circular fashion, stopped, zipped fast, stopped, cruised even slower, then went into a straight climb, blinked 3 times and then blinked out. It changed position and rate of speed at least 10 times in the three minutes I watched it. I followed it across about a third of the sky, say 60 degrees(which is alot). After it blinked out I kept looking for about 5 minutes, no luck. It was very exciting and I wonder if I can go back to bed.( It's 5 am now ) This was a "way cool" sighting.... Peace, ((name deleted))
