The fact that whatever it was, was following ECHO the next night after it was seen by 100s of people in the sacremento valley

This was a famous sighting in a lot of local papers, When I saw it it was hovering, about a 100 to 200 feet off the ground.I had just got into my car when I saw it and started heading south on highway 99 I looked in my rear view mirror and noticed it was slowly moving south also ..I drove about a mile and stopped my car and started watching it with a pair of 7/50 binoculars,it had 5 bluish lights radiating in a pentagon patern and when I finaly got focused on it it shot off to the south east and was out of sight in 3 or 4 seconds, The next night I was in willows Calif. laying on my back waiting for the ECHO sattelite to come over heading east and my mother and I both saw ECHO and was watching for a for a minute or so and I scanned back and trailing the ECHO was the same redish bluish 5 lights I saw the night before on what I think was a UFO..

My neighbor was a california highway officer and he told me that 2 patrolmen had driven out into a field just south of cottonwood Calif. and actualy parked under it and they had to pour coffee into the one that got and looked up for quite awhile before he relate his report the incident made all the local papers but never was reported by any of the larger
