Location: Windsor, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:17 seconds
Bright light traveled away and faded into a redshift until I could no longer see it.

It was just about 20:00h. I remembered I had to bring in the US Flag and turn on the porch lights. I stepped outside, and I just took the flag down and started to roll it up on the pole, when I looked up to see which constellations were out.

That’s when I saw a very bright white (soft white like a light bulb, but very bright) light just SW of the Big Dippers tail at about 35 to 45 degrees elevation from my position (38° 32' 58.7" N, 123° 10' 6.63" W). I noticed it at about 20:03h. The Burst of light was traveling away from me in the direction of two of the outermost stars of the Big Dippers Tail.

In about 3 to 4 seconds the light started to dim and shrink in size as the got farther away. Then the color of the light shifted reddish as it faded. If I remember my physics correctly, that may be because it was traveling away from me. Eventually it just faded to where I could no longer see it with my naked eyes.

I hope this report helps.
