Galt, California Hovering UFO As Large As A House

Time: 5:00 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Galt, California.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Rectangle.

Full Description of event/sighting: It was near sundown on a slightly foggy winter day, I was riding my bike northbound on a small country road when I suddenly noticed a huge object hovering about 1000 feet to the northwest of me. I'm not sure if it was there the whole time or spontaneously appeared. It was silent, fairly large (about the size of a house), silvery-purple in color and the material seemed metallic and had an iridescence. The object had a rectangular base, with a somewhat ventricular top, and a number of exterior pipe-like protrusions that were fashioned of the same silvery-purple material as the rest of the object.

It was low to the earth, only about 20-30 feet over the ground. It frightened me. I turned my bike around and rode away as fast as I could. Initially. the object began to follow me (silently), it trailed me for about 200 yards and then made a sudden change of course and flew off (still rather low to the ground) due east towards the Rancho Seco nuclear power plant where I eventually lost sight of it in the deepening gloom.

Thank you to the witness for an excellent sighting report.
