I was showing my daughter the night sky over Roseville, in Placer County next to Sacramento County were I live, (1 mile out of Sac CO)When we saw a light that looked like a small star. I told her that is was probably just a satilite passing over, but then I realized that because of the lights in the city we shouldn't be able to see it. I have no idea what it is, but it was strange. I can give you the aproximate location in the sky if you wish. Just e-mail me back. ((name deleted)) in Citrus Heights CA.

It looked like a faint star. I don't think it could have been an aircraft as it moved too fast across the sky. When I was younger I had seen a ssatilite pass over while sky watching in the mountians in CA. I was a Boy Scout then and was on a merit badge sky watch. However I shouldn't be able to see this here as we are so close to the city lights that we can't se alot of the stars out there not even the Milky Way!!
