It appeared just as I crested over a hill, blatent and moving slowly and effortlessly just above the tree line.

I am a 52 year old male. I own a small moving company in Reno, NV. I grew up in the East Bay of northern California. Prior to my "sighting" I would consider myself a believer in the possibility that intelligent life exists and very well may be and have been visiting our planet. With that being said I must convey that though I am a "believer" in so called UFO's. I have never had any encounters with or thought I might have possibly seen something that may have been a UFO. Nor have I ever went out into the night and looked for lights in the sky. I would have classified myself about middle of the road much like most of my family and friends.
On 7/6/21 My co-worked and I loaded two 26' Budget rental trucks in Danville, CA. We finished loading the trucks around 5pm right at the beginning of rush hour traffic all the way through Sacramento. Rather than sitting in traffic we visited a friend who lived close bye to kill some time. We were heading East on I-80 in Sacramento when I accidently turned onto Hwy50 East towards Placerville, Ca. and Lake Tahoe. It was a dark night so I was concentrating on the road. Just as I crested over a hill I saw what I thought was a fake spaceship very large mabye half of a football field or bigger just floating above the tree line in the distance. As I got closer the craft became more visible. At the same time I am in my mind trying to rationalize what I am seeing. When I got to around a few hundred yards from the craft It became abundently clear that this was not a baloon. It was the most badassed thing I had ever seen ever! The craft was from what I could see shaped like a tringle but not pointed more rounded at the points. The most noticeable thing was the thickness. It was I guess 10'-15' in height and sort of squared off the pronounced shape stood out. There were faint lights around the craft which helped make out the size better. The color was kind of gun metal grey in color and made no noise nor were there any visible means of propulsion. I was so amazed I could not take my eyes off of it. I was so close to it at that point that there was no internal battle taking place in my head questioning what I was seeing it was just matter of factly going about its business moving over the tree tops and disappearing down the valley out of sight. There were plently of other cars traveling East the direction I was heading as well as cars heading West but as to weather they saw the craft or not I could not say. I was never scared and I never questioned what I saw. What I find odd is that One would think that a encounter like mine would have a profound effect on me but it did not. It was easy to accept. I wanted to report my encounter mainly to see if anyone else saw anything but found it difficult to know where I could report it. My friend suggested this site so now I am reporting it.
