|Bright steady light was observed over Lake Gregory Forth of July celebrate.
Every year at Lake Gregory near Crest Line California they celebrate the Forth of July the weekend before the 4. Thousands of people come to view the show. I have friends that invited me up to view the annual event. The streets of the high mountain community were crowded with thousands of people. The fire works started a little after 9:00. At about 9:20 a bright steady light was observed moving at a rate that could not be explained. There were no flashing lights that could be observed on the object. It moved in form the west toward the east. It then came back around to complete a circle around which the Fireworks where at the center. As the fireworks were going off it made 3 or 4 more circles. The first time it took about 1 min to complete the circle. The circle it made was at least 10 mile across. Which I figured it would have to be moving at about 1800 miles an hour to make the loop in 1 min. It moved slower on the other times around taking about 1 ½ min to make the trip. As it completed the last circle it split into 2 objects and it looked like it dropped straight down without slowing. At the bottom of the drop it merged back into 1 object. It then moved off back in the direction it came from over the mountains. With as many people at this event someone must have video taped it.
