Location: Tracy, CA
Shape: Disk
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color
It was late aternoon,midsummer, me and my father were out on the balcony of his apartment smoking a cigarette. I was leaning on the rail looking out at the horizon while my father was complaining about his girlfriend at the time. I noticed some strange movement on the horizon. I was hard to tell what it was until it stopped very abruptly and hovered. I'd say it was approximately 1 mile away. It was white or possibly reflective in color. It was saucer shaped and made no discernable sound. It was moving in an erratic horizontal pattern from my vantage point. The object seemed to dissipate at certain points and then reappear in a different spot in the sky. As if moving so fast that it became invisible to the naked eye. It did this repeatedly for approximately five minutes. It would dart across and then hover, then dart back in the other direction. I personally watched it for about a minute or so and then pointed it out to my father who comfirmed that he was seeing the event as I was seeing it. We watched it for 3 or 4 more minutes and then the object dissipated one final time and was gone.
