Full Description & Details

I heard my father pull into the front driveway at our house. I went outside to see what was going on because it sounded like he had hit something with the car. I opened the door to see my Dad standing outside looking up at the night sky. He asked me if I could see the orange light that was moving in odd patterns through the night sky. I told him that I could and asked him what he thought it was, he didn't know. We watched it for 10-15 minutes when I decided to grab my rifle for a better look. All I could see was a bright orange light. My father grabbed a spotting scope and said that the light appeared cigar shaped.

I ran inside to grab my Nikon d5000 but as luck would have it the battery was dead. I then ran back inside to grab my video camera which came on but then died as soon as I started to record. We watched the object move from West to East in circular patterns and then just vanish after about an hour. My dad called the Sacramento Air Command the next day and asked if there where any objects flying in the sky that night. They told him that there was a U2 spy plane in the area about that time but I have never seen a cigar shaped, self lit U2 in my entire life that could hover almost motionless while pulsing its intensity in and out. Then to have it just vanish in to thin air. I have no idea what I saw that night but it was very interesting.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

it wasn't a planet, my dad used to teach astronomy at the college. I don't believe it was man made, it was silent and moved very slowly and was very bright. Much brighter than the lights on an aircraft

Witness Background

I am a veteran from the US army also I attend a private christian university

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I just know that sometimes people see things that they cannot explain. This isn't the first time that I have seen something nor do I hope it's my last.
