I feel this is probably a new satellite of some sort, but would like to have it on record as a sighting.

I called in a report of an unidentified flying object and left a brief message. We first saw the object around 6:30PM on October 29, 2013. Location was on the northern tip of the Monterey Bay near Santa Cruz, CA.

The sky was clear and this was the only object showing in the sky. It was very bright and looked like it was slightly moving, but it never went anywhere. It wasn’t an airplane of any sort. The object was round. I have a video I made of it with my Sony Camera 20X lens and it appears to be dancing slightly around, occasionally dipping. I don’t understand this, because with the naked eye it doesn’t appear to be doing anything.

Here’s the curious thing. It’s now 8:00PM and the object is still in the same place, except it’s moved lower, and I have to assume it’s because the earth is moving, and not because the object has moved lower.

Because of this, I feel this is probably a satellite, but I’ve lived here in the same place for the past 14 years and have never noticed it before.

I have no background in this type of thing as do none of the other observers.
