Bright light in Modesto, CA sky.Modesto, CA Sunday April 19, 2009 Approx. 10:30 PM I reside on the Eastern portion of the city and I observed a stationary bright light in the night sky to the WSW. The light appeared to be shifting colors slightly from white light to very slow flashes of very faint red. It was located somewhat low on the horizon at about a 30-35 degree angle. It was not a hovering helicopter, as I heard no noise and it was completely stationary, with no bobbing or shifting of its position whatsoever. I have never seen a light like this at that specific location.I observed this object for a period of 15 minutes or so. It did not move its position in the sky the entire viewing, I thought it was one of the observable planets, but did not know which one. It certainly looked like a planet. Then suddenly it simply vanished. There was a tree off to the right of my immediate visual area that I was marking its location by, so it was not a matter of losing sight amongst the stars in the sky. It was suddenly not where it was upon my earlier observations. A very strange sighting and I cannot explain it.((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of Sirius, we suspect?? PD))
