Multi Colored Object seen in Calaveras County,CA

I live in the Sierras ontop of a ridge at 3400 ft elevation. Our ridge is parallel with Blue Mountain, elevation aprox. 6500 ft. and there is maybe 1 mile between us. At 7:00pm on 1/3/2003 we observed a multi-colored object that looked to be about 4 or 5 times as big as a star roam and at times stop all along the ridge of Blue Mt with an inch or two of sky showing; meaning we never saw it land on the ridge it just sort of floated above it. I looked in my binoculars but could not make the shape out-it just looked like different colors blurring together. This area is frequented by commercial planes that I assume are coming from the SF bay area and for the time I took to really observe this object I saw no less then 12 planes pass right in the vicinity of this object. I am stunned and amazed by what we saw as I'm sure others in our area must be.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the star, "Sirius," in the eastern sky at this hour, would be the first possibility that would have to be ruled out, before we could accept that the object was a genuine UFO. Just a guess. PD))
