New anomalies over Sacramento, 9/2/09...
This morning my wife and I got up at 0430ish to watch the docked shuttle and ISS fly over (which happened at 0537). I went inside at 0450ish to
refill my coffee and when I came back out she went inside to get something. While I was out in the backyard alone I saw several points in the night
sky flash/blink very bright. I saw a couple of them directly. Just flashes of bright light in random places all over the sky.
I sat down in one of the lawn chairs ,and shortly after, 3 bright lights in triangular formation 'turned on' directly in front of where I was
looking (N/NW). It was flying towards Sac Exec airport so I didn't think too much of it, except judging by the distances in the light formation to
each other, if it were a plane it would have been fairly close, yet there was no sound at all. Also, if it were a plane then those pilots should have
had their lights on way before getting that close to the airport, not just turning them on practically a minute or less before landing.
My wife returned a bit later and told me she'd seen the same thing while I was inside refilling my cup earlier... A set of triangular lights flying
around in the sky, except it 'swooped' around a couple of times. She also told me she'd seen other blinking lights in random areas, as well.
Around 0520 or so I saw a large 'shooting star' directly in the path the ISS and shuttle would be flying over, N/NW, so for those who may have seen
this over Sac, these events happened before the shooting star and ISS/shuttle fly over. Roughly 0440-0510 on and off. Anyone else see them?
