Location: Elk Grove, CA
Shape: Other
Duration: approx 8 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
I saw a black silent bat-ray shaped object in daylight hours.

At approx 6:10 pm I stepped outside to smoke a cigarette and noticed what i thought at first was a balloon. The object was moving in circles at first then suddenly went accross the sky from East to West then came to a complete stop.

It then changed direction and sped back East and came to another complete stop. It hovered there this time at a lower altitude where I could clearly make its shape out to be round in the front with two arcs on the rear of the craft which was black in color.

It made no sound.

It hovered for about thirty seconds before taking off at an very fast rate of speed back toward the west and gained altitude before disapearing behind clouds.

A few minutes later it came back at about the same altitude performing similar manuevers before dissapearing off in the distance.

Shortly after the sighting I heard but did not see some loud jets fly over my house several times.
