Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
April 10, 2018, time 05:20 AM. I was driving my big rig southbound on interstate five. I noticed four what seem to be white clouds in a boxed area. There was a dull light in the center of the four clouds moving in a clockwise circular motion, as the light moved to the top It was getting brighter and turned into a large seem to be flares or sparklers that lit up the sky.

I was able to pull over in a wide spot and observe it closer this went on for approximately 20 minutes. I took my phone and tried to do a video but unfortunately it was too dark.

I have been driving truck for 23 years and 16 years as a deputy sheriff. I have never seen anything like this before… I did call California Highway Patrol and they took a report of the event.

Just estimating from my location it was probably 30,000 feet in the air and what appeared to be over Sacramento.
