DAte: Friday June 4 2010
Time: About 7ish or a wee bit later (PM)...
Where: Citrus Heights, Ca
Weather: Clear skies with very little cloud
So I was out side on a break having a smoke when I looked up and spotted what at first appeared to be an airplane.. However, when looking at it it
appeared almost blurry, like I was having trouble focusing on it.. Was very very shiny.
I tried closing one eye to see If I could pull the "image" in to together.. (It was like when you look at something and you and kinda have double
vision and the object you are trying to focus on looks like two)... ANYWHO...
So I realize after a few seconds that its not my vision.
So now the description the best I can.. Because I still can't figure out what the Heck it was..
SILVER.. VERY VERY reflective.
At first thought commercial aircraft.. NOT
The reason I thought I was not focusing on it was because it had 2 "Fuselages" (best I can describe)
Like a craft on a "rocket" NOT SAYING that it was.. Just Thats how it appeared in my mind..
The Bottom "fusaloge" was shorter than what I will call the main body...NO WINGS that I could dissern.. however there was a protustion of some sort
that I liken to a dorsal fin on the top of the "Ship"
I did not see a "tail" section either...
It was larger in mass than a Commercial plane...
Now I was facing south... the sun would have been setting to the west.. (My right)
The craft came from the South and was traveling North
Sun NOT in my eyes.. as it passed in front of me from right to left.. I stepped out into the parking lot to see it fly away from me to try and
identify wings.. still no.. Sound No...
(My scanner not working or I would add a sketch)
Speed... about the same as a commercial plane I would say.. watched it for about a min or so.
Now a commercial airplane came by after and I could hear that and make out the wings even though it was at a higher altitude... (don't ask me to
guestimate the altitude of the object as I have no Idea...or how to judge that.. all I can say that it was lower than the commercial jets that fly by
taking off from Sac Airport)
So 5 miles to my south as the crow fly's is Mather AFB
25 or so miles to my north is Beale AFB
This was not taking off from mather, and it was not flying in the same flight Paths as the Commercial planes that I see and hear EVERYDAY...
Similar flight pattern to the Fighter jets that fly over head often that I see and hear quite well.
My son said maybe it was the Shuttle... I don't think so.. It was going in the wrong direction if it were to land at Edwards AFB.. PLUS it would not
still be attached to the "Rocket"
No photo, camera was inside in my purse and I don't think I would have got anything but a shiny dot anyway...
