|"Hay! those two planes are going to run into each orther" is what I said
OK I'm going to try this one more time. I guess I scrwed up the last time I tried to send this 3 days after sighting happend.
Was driving North bound on I-15 with girl friend on the way to Vegas, about 5 miles past the Silverwood Lake turn off and about one and a half miles befor Oak hill RD. exit at the top of grade. Was only doing 55 mph. because this is the steepest part of that strech of Fwy. All of a sudden, droping out below the celing(appx. 6000 ft. that nite) from the north was a dull orange glowing ball of light that lit up the clouds as it passsed through them. Allmost at the same time we see a bright blue pinpoint of light come UP from the west and in a zig zag manner head for the orange ball that now had become brighter. The blue pinpoint then wildly flew around the bigger orange ball that was getting closer to us so that we could see somr kind of structur to it.
Then in a big blue orange flash thay joined together into a bright multi colored ball of light that lasted only a few seconds and then thay separated again. At this time this is all happening right above us less than 1500ft. away just below the clouds that would light up with the bigger flashes. Awsum huh? Any way the blue pinpoint slowly started back the way it came only this time flying straght and true and did a slow fade away/out right befor our eyes! At this time the other thing was getting brighter and brighter and brighter and small thin orange thread like stuff was hanging from the bottom of it and then the F--king thing disapeared! I guess you guys call it a "blink out" well anyway it was gone and we were both left with our mouth's hanging open wide.
I've been to many air shows and we've seen lots of different aircraft flying around the local mountains and deserts while camping and four wheeling and never seen anything like this befor. I am shure other cars and trucks saw what we saw because 4259ft. is the summit at Cajon Pass and that dont leave much room below the clouds and above the ground. The whole thing lasted about 35 to 45 seconds. I will never forget this ever and dont think she will to soon also. This event occured at appx. same time that reports of two planes crashing off Long Beach harbor that same nite on Fox news 11 that my neighbor told me about on my return from Vegas on Wed. 3/28/01
