Sighting Report
Occurred : 3/11/1999 23:55 (Entered as : 03/11/99 23:55)
Reported: 3/12/1999 18:45
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Santa Rosa, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:4 seconds
Travled very fast north to south. Lights on all points. Very little sound.

The triangle traveled from north to south very fast. I have a view of the sky of about 100 degrees and I live in a rural area of Santa Rosa. There is an airport about 10 miles west of us, and every departing plane can be heard. The object had four lights, one on each point and one in the center. The lights were red and blue as the object came toward me and while receding were white. None of the lights were blinking. The object also made little noise. It sounded more like wind rustling through trees than anything else. And the object was traveling very, very fast. In comparison a Jumbo-jet coming from San Francisco International Airport takes about a minute to pass through to view alotted to me of the sky. This object went through that alotted view of 100 degrees of the night sky, in 3 seconds.

((SECOND REPORT FROM SAME SOURCE))

Going North to South. Three colored lights on points. Fourth color in center. No blinking lights of any kind.

I'm a 25 year old male and have lived in Sonoma County for most of my life. The trianglar shape had three lights, on on each point. The color shifted from red and blue while coming toward me, to white while receding. There was also a fourth red light located in the center. The object traveled from the north toward the south (San Francisco) and was traveling fast. In a view of about 100 degrees of the night sky, the object traveled that spanse in about 3 to 4 seconds. There was very, very little noise. The practically quiet noise (I live in a rural part of Santa Rosa and can hear planes depart from the local airport 10 miles away) was traveling about a second behind the object.
