Caller was driving south on Highway 395, between Big Pine and Aberdeen, CA. Suddenly, she saw a "triangular thing" with distinctly white sparks flowing off the nose, and then sweeping along both the top and bottom surfaces of the object.

The object's apparent size was 4" held at arm's length; it was twice the size of a full moon. (sic)

The object disappeared from her sight within 3-5 seconds, flying east over the Inyo Mountains.

She called the sheriff's department to report it.
