Duration:15 minutes
The object hovered and dissapeared then came back several times.

This happened so long ago....I was about 9 years old and I was lying on the deck in the front of my house (in Lake of the Pines outside of Auburn CA) with my friend. We were looking at shooting stars and all of a sudden the craft flew over our heads and hovered. It then took off extremely fast out of our vision. Then it came back and hovered again over our heads and took off in the other direction, again, out of our vision. I believe it came back one more time, hovered for what seemed like maybe five minutes and took off again. After being frozen with fear we ran into the house. We never reported this to anyone. I would say that it all happened within 10-20 minutes.
