California - 10-10-11

california101011 740 493 At 12:30, just before going to bed, I was peering at the night sky over Pleasanton. The moon was near full size, and the sky was partially clear of clouds making a spectacular scene.

I noticed a bright light vertically above me. This light was way brighter than all other stars in the sky.

At first I thought it was a plane flying over and disregarded it. I also seemed to see 3 lights in a row. But as I continued to look at this I noticed that this object was not moving, its lights were not flickering.

I immediately picked up my camera with the 250 mm zoom lens and focused upward and began to click.

One of my first pictures showed 3 blurry lines. The light looked like a line because I shook the camera - dragging the light to appear like a line. It still did not make sense that I had 3 lines in the same pattern. I have attached the picture below.

Then I went out to my patio and began clicking pictures. All the pictures I clicked looked like one bright light except one picture where you could clearly see a 3 light pattern with blue lights on the sides.

Furthermore I also shot a long exposure picture - all the stars in the sky made much thinner trails but this object made a thick trail - indicating a much brighter source.

Im not at any point claiming this is a UFO, but Id like to know what I saw.

I then proceeded to get my 10x50 mm Nikon binoculars and I could see a 5 prong pattern on this object.

This object stayed at the same spot for 2 hours. At around 2:30 AM, the clouds began to cover the object and it dimmed out.
