UFO over Petaluma on August 28, 2016, @ approximately 7:30 pm.My nine-years-old son was in the backyard and noticed a light in the sky, mentioning that it was too early for the stars and it this one didn’t even look like one. I came out and saw a bright object, obviously not a star, staying in one spot with the sun clearly reflecting off it. Got binoculars and couldn’t believe my eyes. It looked like a semi-transparent sphere with five white lights under it. Gave my son the binoculars and asked him what he sees. His words were: “No way, no way.” He also saw the lights underneath it. Called my husband to come out and look. By then the object wasn’t transparent but was an oval shape and reflecting the sun like metal. The object was there for approximately an hour, and then began slowly drifting east until it disappeared. I took a (very bad) picture with my phone but was only be able to capture a faint light spot in the sky. But the picture has a date and time stamp.
