Location: Camarillo, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
Light circles star and then fades out.

This was a very brief incident but I still got a fairly good look. I was walking west down N. Rowland Drive in Camarillo and I happened to glance upwards. I saw what appeared to be a light traveling around the star Sigma Cassiopeiae, also called "Ruchbah" I saw it circle once and once it broke from the circle it traveled south west a short distance before quickly fading out. I would say the radius of the circle was a fourth of an inch or a little more at arms length. The object was slightly brighter than the star originally, and was whitish in color. When I first caught sight of it it seemed to be transitioning from one direction of motion, to another, and entered the circle shortly thereafter.

My exact coordinates at the time were 34 degrees 13' 30.23" N 119 degrees 02'45.74" W at an elevation of 143 ft above sea level.

It was moving slightly faster than a satellite.
