Location: Sonora, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:10 mins
Very bright orange light low in sky, then just blinked out from left to right.

I was swimming at Angels Creek, New Melones Lake when I saw a very bright, orange light - low in sky. Stayed stationary for 10 mins. Noticed many aircraft in vacinity to compare it to. Was about twice the intensity of Venus. As I was watching it it just blinked out and was gone. As it dissapeared it gave the impression that it dissapeared from left to right, as if someone had rubbed out the left side before the right side. Anyhows, it was gone in less than a second.
