Shape: Cylinder
Duration: 5 mins
Cylinder shape over Sacramento

Large (but high altitude) dark cylindrical object very high in the sky oriented North-South going toward south first then orienting south-east. Disappeared after 5 mins. Too large to be a plane at that altitude (there was a small semi-transparent cloud I used as reference for altitude), and didn't have any blinking light (a plane would have its lights). No engine-trail behind the object (like a plane usually leaves) and completely disappeared after 5 mins. The object was directly over Sacramento, a bit towards Roseville. Should crosscheck with planes schedules anyhow.
