Duration:1-3 minutes
Small Orange Sphere seen near Sacramento.

We were heading south down Grantline road in Elk Grove at 730pm.

The object was headed north back towards Sacramento, it passed right over our car at about 100 feet.

It was a small orange/yellow sphere. Looked to have a lite haze around it.

No idea what it was. Never seen anything like it.


((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))

Peter,
It looked half the size of the full moon in the night sky. Kind of a hazed orange/yellow glow. Since it was night I could not truly tell how high it was in the air. Seemed to be between 100 and 200 feet and rising slightly I know for sure it was not an airplane or helicopter and lasted too long to be a flair. It also moved in a linear path and seemed to be rising slightly as it went south to north from east Elk Grove toward Sacramento.
