Location: Sacramento, CA
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 20 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Driving down the highway and saw a cigar shaped craft with a red light in the middle.

I was driving down the highway on my way home from the mall, I had just picked up my sisters prom dress. As I was driving down the highway, I saw a red blinking light in the sky.

At first i didnt think too much of it, just another airplane. But when I looked up again, I saw that the light was moving very very slow, too slow to be an airplane, and way to close to the ground.

As I got closer to it, I saw the outline of a craft, and saw that it was cigar shaped. I pulled out my cell phone to try to get a picture of it, but i began to swerve and I didnt want to hit a car, so i put my phone away.

When i passed it, I looked back and it looked to just be hovering over the highway.

I was freaked out by the whole thing. I kept driving and eventually lost sight of it.
