Further Description of Sighting: I was out riding my horse with my Two sisters when a very Bright Florescent Pink Teardrop shaped image appeared in the sky. This was not a firework display even though It was sighted the day after 4th of July.
We spotted the craft in the eastern sky just over the Sacramento river about One mile away from where we were. It appeared for about 5 minutes just hovering then disappeared. It then reappeared but farther south kind of following the direction of the river then disappeared again. A few minutes later it reappeared, but this time it was much closer headed towards us to the West. It just hovered there without any noise for about 5 minutes then disappeared once again. The next time it reappeared, it was even closer to us and was so intense that my sister and I became so scared we took off in a dead run on our horses to get away.
I remember reading the paper the next day and seeing an article in the paper about a UFO sighting in Europe. The Article described the UFO as being teardrop shape which sounded very similar to what my sisters and I had witnessed.
