Location: Fair Oaks, CA
Shape: Circle
Duration:7-8 minutes
Metallic sphere hovering over edge of Folsom lake, California.

While walking my dog, I observed a circular object at 1945 hrs in the sky that was stationary. It was a dark metallic color. It struck me as odd that the shape was not moving.

The object was just below the cloud deck. I thought maybe it was a raptor riding thermal currents; but I thought this was not possible do to the stationary status of the object. Besides, this object did not behaving like raptors I have viewed before over my neighborhood.

I observed the object for a full five minutes; after which I went to my house to retrieve my bird watching binoculars (@ 1950 hrs). When I returned to the same vantage point to view the object it was still staionary, in they sky, below the cloud deck, not having moved. By this time it was 1952 hrs.

As I viewed the object with my binoculars I could see a slight glint or light on the western side of the object. Suddenly the object vanished. I had the strange feeling that the object knew I was observing it when it dissapeared. I continued the watch in and around the same area of the sky for another five minutes ... it never reappeared. If I were to pinpoint the location I would have to say the object was over the city of Folsom, Ca, north and slightly east by Folsom lake.

One thought that crossed my mind was that this may have been a mylar balloon, however at the height which I observed it, I don't believe that to be the case.
