Location: Wrightwood Mtn., CA
Shape: Light
Young man was sitting in a parking lot near "Wrightwood Mountain" (?), when he suddenly noticed a bright red flare in the distance. When the caller began to leave the parking lot, the flare suddenly grew brighter, and it began to move.

He pulled off the road, at which time the red light faded again, then grew bright again, and then moved off in the direction of "Wrightwood Mountain." (?)

The object looked like a circular red flare, it had no tail, it gave off no smoke, and it made no sound.

He called local radio stations and newspapers to see if there had been other reports, but learned of none.
