Location: Sacramento, CA
Shape: Triangle
Triangle shaped object spotted over Sacramento River.

On the evening of January 2, 2010, my friend and I were driving East over the Capital Mall bridge from West Sacramento across the Sacramento river into downtown Sacramento. It was a beautifully clear night. I noticed lights over the I-5 freeway that seemed to be too low in the sky to be a plane and they didn't appear to be a helicopter. As we approached the object appeared to be hovering. I pointed it out to my friend who was driving and said, "What the hell is that!" At that time we were approaching a stop light on the corner of 3rd and Capital Mall and it was clear the object was moving but very slow.

At that point with all the lights from the freeway and building etc, all we could make out were the lights on the object which I think were red and white. As we turned left heading South on 3rd Street, the object passed overhead slightly to the rear of the truck and we both clearly saw the triangle shape. It headed West across the Sacramento River tow! ard the Port of Sacramento which is located in West Sacramento. We both saw the triangle shape clearly as it passed overhead and we could see a white light in the center of the triangle. Once it went over the river it tilted to the right and headed in a Northerly direction. There were no news reports of any kind the next day. It boggles the mind that something that big and that incredably close went unnoticed.
