I was in my back yard watering the lawn around 6:30pm I work for the State of California Legislature and I look up and see this light that would brighten and then get dim to the north of downtown Sacramento I dont know if it was the sun reflecting off it or what it almost looked like a star the way it was lit up but but it was much to low and it was moving as I was watching it if you looked carefully there looked like there was heat coming from it like how the sun reflects of concrete of in the distance in the sumertime. so I tried to call 3 different people and finally get a hold of my roomate who tells me to get the video camera which I did and filmed as much of it as I could about 17 minutes worth when I zoomed in it looked like one of the ufos I had seen from a guy name Anthony Woods the cluster of orbs that would change shape although it was hard to keep the camera still it was the first time I had ever used it plus the time of day it was hard to see what exactly this thing was this thing was hovering over Sacramento for over an hour I saw 2 different planes 1 was a commercial airliner that had to have seen this thing the flew right passed it. when my roomate who is a network manager at a architectural firm got home it was an hour later around 7:30pm and the thing was to the south east. It was still visible but much farther away he saw that there were no other stars out and this think was getting brighter and dimmer when he saw the video he definitely agreed it was a UFO. It was no plane. Did anyone else in Sacramento see this?
