Location: North Highlands, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 seconds
Large, fast-moving, triangular object with orange lights spotted in Sacramento sky.

I was out for the evening to catch the meteor shower, talking on the phone with my friend, when I noticed a fast-moving, triangular group of lights moving from south to north. 7 lights formed a V-shape, with 2 more lights forming the third line in the "back," making a triangular shape. I noticed no physical form, and the lights were orange.

At first I assumed geese reflecting light, but the shape was too perfect and un-changing. I discovered that I could not take pictures with my phone while on a call the hard way, disconnected the call, and found that as I fumbled with the camera controls it had disappeared. The only other detail I noticed was a strange quiet, but this could have been an effect of the shock of the moment. The object made no sound. I could not surmise the size of the object, or be sure of its solidity, but it appeared large. With my arm outstretched, it was about the size of four of my fists. Distance unclear.

Right after the sighting I noticed how much noise there was again, suddenly. Airplanes, the freeway, etc.
