TUBE SHAPED OBJECT WITH FLASHING LIGHTS HANGING IN SKY OVER MIDDLE OF HWY.

I WAS DRIVING EAST ON HIGHWAY 10 EAST BETWEEN DESERT CENTER AND COMING ON TO THE LAST REST STOP BEFORE BLYTHE. I SAW A FLASHING LIGHT WITH ANOTHER LIGHT THAT LOOKED LIKE A SMALL FLAME FLASHING DOWN AT A 45-DEGREE ANGLE AND IT FLASHED AT REGULAR INTERVALS. AS I APPROACHED I THOUGHT IT MAY BE A LIGHT FROM A MOUNTAIN TO WARN AIRCRAFT OR A RADIO TOWER.I HAVE DRIVEN THIS ROAD FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND DID NOT REMEMBER SEEING A LIGHT IN THIS LOCATION BUT WHEN I GOT CLOSER I NOTICED A LOT OF PEOPLE PULLING OFF THE ROAD ON TO THE REST STOP BUT THERE WERE CARS ALSO PULLING OFF TO THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY.

I LOOKED UP TO SEE A LARGE TUBE SHAPED OBJECT CONNECTED TO THE LIGHTS ALSO AT A 45- DEGREE BUT FROM ANOTHER ANGLE IN BACK OF AND SEEMINGLY CONNECTED TO THE LIGHTS AND IT WAS HANGING IN THE SKY OVER THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD!I WAS ALONE AND THE SUN WAS SETTING TO MY BACK AND I WAS IN A HURRY SO I DROVE ON.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and we found her to be quite sober-minded and credible. PD))
