Location: Sacramento, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:20 seconds
A light that, at first, appeared to be a star, suddenly flashed several colors and flew away from the Earth until it disappeared.

In the West Southwest sky, southwest of Spica in the Virgo constellation, between Virgo and Hydra, I saw a light in the sky that appeared to be a star. Moments later, the star began changing colors from yellowish-white to red to blue and flashing excitedly, briefly got brighter, then it appeared to began moving away from the Earth at what I can only assume was a surprising fast rate of speed. The light grew smaller and smaller until finally is disappeared. There appeared to be a faint haze around where the lights had been. The movement away from the Earth was very fast and took only moments. This entire event took only 20-25 seconds.

I am a 50 years old man, a college-educated music teacher and music director, and married to my husband for nearly five years. I have five children and 10 grandchildren. I have lived in Sacramento since 1976. I have never before experienced anything like this. I am a man of faith, but not religious. I am fairly healthy physically and very healthy mentally.
