UFO in Novato CA 3/20/07 9:27 pm

I was gazing out my upstairs bathroom window and noticed how bright and brilliant the stars looked. A crystal clear evening I could see the big dipper and Venus in full view. All of a sudden I saw a slow moving sphere moving in direct alignment of Venus gliding North across the sky. I thought it was a small plane because there is a small airplane strip here in Novato. This was somehow slower moving and larger than a private plane or jet. The color was different as well. At first it looked white then as it moved closer across the sky toward where I was viewing,it became reddish or like an amber color. It got bigger and brighter and just as I started to think "that's not a plane" started to fade and I mean fade in a hurry. IWithin 3 seconds it just faded and vanished into thin air. I started yelling at my husband that I saw something and didn't know what happened to the moving light/object. Did my eyes distort or was I imagining it? That was my skeptical self talking. I wanted to make something real out of what I just saw. No, I witnessed an unidentified flying object that glided across the sky, silently and disappeared before my eyes. I left an email with my local news station asking if anyone else had witnessed what I did. It happened so fast and it's seared in my memory. I'll never forget it.
