Sacramento, California - December, 2013
I was sitting in the living room, with double bay window blinds open wide to let in the light of a bright, yet over cast day, casually plucking my eyebrows.
I am always observant and very aware of my side vision. I noticed a large, dark structure going past the window, two houses above housetop levels here, which would be about 50 ft.
It was going at a steady speed, not fast, not slow, so I took it for a large black bird, but as large as it was, it would have had to have been Rodan.
I immediately noticed it never flapped which made me look directly at it just as it was crossing a partition separating the next window.
Its flight pattern was too razor straight, which made it noticeable as well. Just as it passed to the next window, I was no longer in doubt that it was in fact a saucer, as it came to a dead stop in midair, just before it continued and disappeared behind some scruffy treetops.
When it stopped I could see it was gun metal black, and its outer structure looked crumbly, like a scorched charcoal briquette.
It was pointed at either end, pointed with a sort of knobby top, and thickly flat on the bottom. It had two lines of white dots going horizontally across it; one set separating the top knob, the other set closer to the body bottom.
The time was 12:25 pm. It was going from West to East. Five minutes later a large jet flew by; VERY low, following the seemingly same flight pattern.
It happened too quickly for pictures, or binoculars, or to run outside. I sat for 2 minutes before I could say, "Wow."
I then woke my niece and her husband, who work nights, but they KNOW about my saucer experiences. They smiled and said, "Did it scare you?" I was more amazed than scared.
