an eye that was slightly pulsating and moving slowly...
I was at my house in Citrus Heights moving my car for my brother-in-law
to go to work. I observed an object that was unusually bright to the
east in the sky.
I pointed it out to my brother-in-law and asked him what
he thought it was. I observed it slowly ascending into the sky 40 degrees
from the horizon. This was about 5:45 in the morning.
I returned inside to
get the telescope that we have. I proceeded to set up the telescope
outside my front door and view the object through the lens.
I observed an
object resembling an eye that was slightly pulsating and moving slowly. It
was yellowish green in color and had a circle in the middle that was black
with three line like things separating it into three pieces.
I was not sure
what the object could've been initially, so I proceeded to take pictures
through the lens of the telescope thus documenting my observation.
thought it was very strange and something I've never seen before. I asked
several people of my acquaintance and family if they had ever observed
anything that was similar; they had not.
I lost sight of the object because
the sun finally rose and the light obscured anything else to be seen. To
my knowledge it never stopped moving upwards.
It was extremely slow and not the space station.
