Posted: 5/12/2009
Location: Sacramento, CA
Shape: Changing
Duration: over 1 hr
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
clear night sky, bright object, changing shapes and moving quickly in every direction with no pattern.

From at least 4:30 AM thru 5:55 AM from the mid 5200 Block of the 60's Streets in Sacramento, near Fruitridge and 65th - due East at what I believe was about 20 degrees above horizon was a bright light that stayed visible but moved quickly up and down, side to side and at diagonals. It stayed visible varying only slightly in any direction until approx 5:20 AM at which time it quickly moved up and right and stayed there for at least hour. There were 2 witnesses. We got some video footage but it's not great. Used a telescope to try to get closer but all we could see was a bright light which seemed to morph in shape and move quickly in any given direction without notice. Could not make out the shape of object except that it seemed to change shapes rather regularly. If others saw this or know what it could have been, insight would be appreciated. It was impossible to tell the distance but it was many miles away.
