National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 1/26/2020 16:15 (Entered as : 01/26/20 16:15)
Reported: 2/9/2020 12:06:06 AM 00:06
Posted: 2/13/2020
Location: Santa Rsoa, CA
Shape: Cylinder
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright green glowing cylinder, flying horizontally, in a steady direct line, disappearing abruptly without arcing, falling or flaring.

I watched a bright green glowing cylinder, flying horizontally, parallel to the ground, moving at a steady, brisk pace (75-100mph?), in a direct line from West to East. It was maybe 100-200 feet up, about 10-20 feet long and 2 feet across. After about 8 seconds it just disappeared without falling or flaring, well before hitting the horizon or going behind anything that would have taken it out of my line of sight. It made no sound that could be heard from my location. There was no trail or exhaust that I could see. No rotors, no wings, no discernible features protruding from the cylinder.

It was a sunny afternoon, with just a few, very high wispy clouds that did not obscure observation of the object. There was no wind at ground level. The clouds were moving from Southwest to Northeast, not the same direction as the object.
