Location: Placerville, CA
Shape: Diamond
Duration:10 min
white diamond shaped object with bright orange lights hovered over placerville from the west, then moved north at very slow pace

my son was out on the front porch and saw this craft that came from the west (sacramento) and, when was overhead in placerville, hovered (in the proximity of our house) and veered north. craft was white diamond shaped (long triangle on one end and short triangle on the other) with very bright orange lights underneath in a pattern of 1 light: 3 vertical lights: 1 light. it appeared to be exhibiting a waffling, floating motion. when my son got me to see, it had moved far enough away that what i saw was an estremely bright orange glow in the shape of a log -- it gave me the impression that it was an object on fire. moved very slowly. it continued at this pace northward until could no longer be seen. the eeriest part of this is that it was absolutely soundless.
