Location: Meadow (Between Ellsinore & Paris), CA
Shape: Cone
A lady called me from Meadow, California and said she watched what looked like a cone shaped object moving from side to side flying across the sky. The witness was backing into her carport when she spotted the object and started yelling at her daughter who was with her to look towards the mountains. Her daughter looked in the wrong direction and missed seeing it. She said the back of the object looked like it was flared out. As she observed the object move across the sky it would fade in and out. Also she noticed when stated to fade she saw a red puff come off of it.

I asked what she meant by a "red puff". She really found it hard to explain and said it was a red something, like a burst of red. Every time the object gave off the puff of red the object itself became more visible, or a bright white in color.

There was no contrail left by the object. It was flying from the north heading to the south in a straight line. I asked if she was able to give me a rough idea as to the size of the craft. The witness said it had to be longer than the length of her arm. The lady said it was traveling at a very low altitude, between the mountains and her residence, but extremely low.

She also said there is a small airport close to where she resides. I wondered if a plane was coming into to land or one might have been taking off. But from the sounds of what the lady saw it doesn't seem to resemble an aircraft I am aware of, but of course hard to say. There was no sound heard, but another interesting point she made was that her pets (dogs) and the neighbors dogs were acting up all night long. (only this one night when the sighting took place) The lady said this is certainly out of the norm for them to carry on like this and she thought this was unusual.

It was interesting to note that on the weekend the local Airforce Base there was a aircraft fair taking place she told me and this was after her sighting.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
