Duration:4 min
I saw a disk shaped black and white very sleek and shiny, at least a 1/4 mile in front of me able to travel very slow or very rapid

Driving home from the groceries I turned onto the street which would be the nearest cross street to mine. About a quarter mile in front of me I saw a black and white craft initially I thought it was an airplane as it looked so new and shiny in the bright sun. I was curious because of its sleek apearance that perhaps it was some new type private jet I just assumed I didn't see the wings because of the angle I was looking at it from the side. However I continued to watch it and it turned and continued off to my left as I watched it I thought it was strange that it was so slow moving and to my surprise it came to a stop. I watched it another minute and it finally took off I even stopped my car in the middle of the road. After it took off and I tried to continue to track it because of all the trees in the neighborhood I lost sight. I never saw any wings on this craft. I drove home immediatly to see if I could see it from my house and so I could show my son but it was gone. Curiously it was following the path of the American River, flew over the fish hatcheries there and then over lake Nimbus when I lost sight. Another odd fact..we have a very large company on about 20 acres, Aerojet General who builds and tests rocket engines right along side the fish hatchery. I was broken hearted when I didn't see any additional reports on yours nor any other sites. I've never been given to flights of fantasy and it was the middle of the day. I did see it.
