Reported: 2012-02-04 17:25 Pacific
Duration: 1-2 minutes
No of observers: 1

Location: Weed, CA, USA

Shape: Light

Bright gold/white light flying low over Lake Shastina area.

An extremely large ball of white/gold light-- brighter and bigger than any star, yet star-like in nature. It was flying very low and in total silence from the horizon behind Lake Shastina and traveling towards Mt. Shasta. The night sky was dark and clear as the moon had set already.

There was no noise anywhere at five-thirty in the morning; dead quiet. It made it's way within a minute to the Shastina cone of Mt. Shasta, faded to a dim spot, and seemed to drift down into the mountain; jaw dropping. I don't see things like this... ever.

To be honest I see satellites but this was just too bright and golden colored-- and too big. There was no way a plane could have passed over without being heard by me-- it was too low. Today, one day later, a big black helicopter flew over-- never seen one of those here, either, and it was loud.
