Location: Sacramento, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
Bright, square white light, flared, then dissolved.

On this Sunday evening, I returned home about 8:20 p.m. Above my house, looking south-to-southeast, I saw a bright white light, that appeared to be flaring upward. This light sat stationary just above the roof of my house and appeared to change shape, as it slowly descended until the main portion of the light dissolved and flared out. This bright light measured approximately one-half inch between thumb and index finger with arms extended. The light sat between two planetary objects, which were also captured in my iPhone still image and video (attached in an email).

The principal light source did not appear to be a craft of any sort. But the high luminosity suggests it was something very unusual, especially as it flared and then dissolved in night sky, below my roof line. Several minutes later, I walked around the corner, but could not spot it anywhere in the southern sky.

(Thanks for all your work in this area over the years, Peter!)
