The object was a bright light, light blue in color, and much brighter than a star or planet.Spotted at about 5:10 am, Saturday morning, September 16, 2012. The object was a bright light, light blue in color, and much brighter than a star or planet appears in the night sky, maybe about twice the size of anything I have seen in the sky. I noticed it as I walked out in my backyard to have a smoke. The light appeared to be above the mountains in the SSW of the valley, which lead to Lake Tahoe, not sure how high. At first, I thought maybe it was Jupiter or another large planet, but my stargazer app showed Jupiter in the northeast sky and nothing significantly large or bright in the area where I was looking. After about a minute of admiring what I assumed was a strange bright star or planet, it began to move northward. It moved at a slow pace much slower than what I am use to seeing the average plain in the night sky move, also there were no flashing lights, and I could hear no noise, simply a brilliant light blue light floating across the sky. After it ! left my view from the back yard, which was obstructed by the roof of my house, I decided to go out front to see if it was still there and it was. The light appeared to still be traveling at the same rate of speed, but a few seconds after spotting the light in the front yard it stopped, this time hovering in the northeast sky. Exited that it might actually be a UFO, I ran in to grab a small “moongazer” telescope, set it up out front, and located the craft with a 20mm lens, but it still just looked like a light, so I tried a 12mm, 6mm, and 4mm lens in the telescope. Through the 4mm lens, I could see that it was emitting a bright blue glow, and had Blues, reds, oranges and other colors, which I could not quite make out, shimmering all around it, although it still looked like a ball of light. I am not too sure how long it stayed there because I went in to check on my daughter around 5:40 and when I came out to gather my telescope equipment the sun was rising. I could no longer ! tell if it was there.
