Location: Skies over Sierra Nevada, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
several very fast greenish/blue pulses of light along the Eastern side of California or possibly in Nevada

I was traveling north on Highway 99 between Sacramento and Marysville. I am not sure of the actual date but it was Memorial Day Weekend 1997. I did not actually see an object so to speak. There were just several pulses of greenish/blue light, one right after the other for several minutes. Followed by a short break of a couple of minutes then another series but not as many as the first. Lighting the sky in a northenly direction, mainly reflecting off some scattered clouds. There was no lightning activity on this night nor enough cloud cover to produce any, and they were not white. I would estimate they were traveling between Yosemite(approx.) and Lassen(approx.) in less than a second. Faster than one could imagine. I wasn't counting but I would have to say there were about 20-30 in all. I would not rule out experimental aircraft, which I feel is the most likely scenario in this case. I have my eyes checked regularly and still have 20/15 or better vision. I was not drinking or under the influence of anything. I do believe our government does not tell us everything they know and are working on. I dont care if anyone believes me or not, I am just stepping up to share with those who have seen things that they themselves cannot identify. To sum this up,I have never seen anything like it and will never forget it.
