Location: China Lake, CA
|Red and white lights.
We were on our way out to the desert to go camping, we stopped at Jack in the Box for some food to tide us over for the night, while driving down 178 towards Trona we saw what apeared to be two blinking red lights circleing a single white light. The lights hovered above us for a moment then darted towards the Navy base at China Lake at an unbelievable speed and vanished. About 5 minutes after we saw the lights and probably 7 miles further down the highway we saw a formation of Navy fighter jets flying in the direction of the lights at full speed in after burner.
