Location: North Highlands, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:35 minutes
A BRIGHT LIGHT DANCING IN THE SKY FOR 35 TO 40 MINUTES ZIG-ZAGGING FAST AND SLOW

DID ANYONE SEE A BRIGHT OBJECT IN THE SKY OVER NORTH HIGHLANDS ELVERTA AREA IN SACRAMENTO COUNTY?

THIS OBJECT WAS A BRIGHT LIGHT NO COLOR DANCING IN THE SKY FROM WHEN I NOTICED IT AT 10:40 P.M. TO 11:15 P.M.

WAS WALKING TO MY CAR AND TURNED AROUND TO SAY BYE TO MY MOM AND SAW THE LIGHT I THOUGHT IT WAS FALLING STAR, IT WAS FALLING SLOW SWAYING FROM SIDE TO SIDE THEN IT SHOT STRAIGHT UP AND SLOWED DOWN AND WENT SIDE TO SIDE AND DROPPED FAST ZIG ZAGGING THEN IT WENT TO THE SIDE AND STOPPED REAL FAST, IT DID THIS FOR 35 MINUTES. IT WAS THE COOLEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN. IT WOULD GET REAL BRIGHT, THE DIM, IT WOULD MOVE FAST THEN SLOW. I CALLED CHANNEL 3 NEW, THEY SAID NOBODY REPORTED IT BUT THEY WOULD LOOK INTO IT. WE WATCHED IT FOR 35 MINUTES UNTIL IT STARTED FLOATING DOWN AND SHAKING FROM SIDE TO SIDE, AND THE LAST 30 SECONDS I COULD SEE THERE WAS SOMETHING ON TOP OF THE LIGHT. IT WENT DOWN WHERE WE COULDN'T SEE IT ANYMORE AND NEVER CAME BACK UP. DID ANYONE SEE ANYTHING ON AUGUST 16 BETWEEN 10:40 AND 11:15? IT TAPED IT ON MY DIGITAL CAMERA, BUT IT'S NOTHING NEAR AS GOOD AS WHAT WE WATCHED IN PERSON.
