Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Chevron
Duration:15 minutes
Chevron shaped object hovering and also slow moving, very high, over San Francisco

We (2 adults and a toddler) saw a sparkle shimmering in the sky from our balcony at home. At first glance it appeared like a very high airplane shimmering in the sun but it stayed still. Though still, it did move very very slowly from the west to the east. It stayed there hovering or slow moving at least 15 minutes. It would shimmer, flash light and then disappear, then re-appear within seconds.

I went to get a camera with a 500 ml zoom lens and took some photos. After downloading to my computer, I zoomed in further. The object is boomerang shaped and it rotates around. Sometimes in had red, orange and yellow colors, other times it had green and yellow. Possibly this is from the rainbow spectrum of light bouncing off of it. Otherwise it looks metallic, silver. The sky was clear blue, no clouds. There was no sound. We saw an airplane pass by during this sighting and it made a typical noise, but otherwise the object did not have any sound.
