First off, some background on myself. I own my CNC machining business. Have been a race engine builder for years. Worked with GM for years. Studied astronomy, physics and engineering. Very down to earth person. I don't look for phenomena, but have always had a major interest in the natural world. I quest for knowledge in all my endeavors. I not easily swayed, I seek facts and details.
I could go further, but that being said, here's my event.
February 2006; I was driving home late at night, ~12:00 a.m. from my shop. My girlfriend was with me at this time. We were heading north on I-15. Just passed California Oaks off ramp, we both noticed a very bright light hovering just above the horizon about NW, 10:30 from our position. It was very strange in that there was no traffic in our direction. No lights ahead and one set of lights very far behind us. Very unusual for the busy I-15. We commented on the brightness of the lights. Like they were pointed right at us. They were brighter than any aircraft lights I've ever seen. But there were 3 together but distinctly separate. We thought it may be a helicopter. It moved ever so slightly towards us, maintaining it's altitude. We continued to comment on the strangeness. As we approached Bundy Canyon, the object seemed to start to draw a bead on us. Again there was oddly no other traffic in our direction, but a sporadic car passing on the opposite side heading south.
As we passed Bundy the object was now even with us and within a 1/4 mile to the direct West of us and falling slightly behind us, say to the 8:00 position. It's altitude was maybe 200'. It then turned and maintained running parallel to our direction exactly off at 9:00. It maintained that distance for ~ 1/4 mile, then moved in to us. It continued to fly directly over the truck. I become very uneasy and speed up to around 100 mph, because I felt like it may hit us. It flew directly above us for maybe a 1/2 mile and then started to veer off to the East and disengaged slowly. I could not see it off the passenger side except for just a couple of glimpses. My girlfriend continued to eye it. She said it then shot off to the East at an extremely high rate of speed. Faster than a jet she said.
Strange facts: NO noise. This object made NO noise, even flying about 100' above us.
Three aircraft type landing lights up front and two of the same type lights in the assumed "Rear" of the object.
NO traditional navigation lights or strobes.
And the most amazing aspect of all is that there was no visible body. We could not make out any physical type of structure to the object. NO wings, NO fuselage, NO body. Just lights and void between the lights. Even as the object came over head, we could not see any type of body. The object did appear to be circular only becuase of the way the lights were positioned.
I figured you may like to add this sighting to what ever compilation you may have.
You may contact me anytime if you would like to ask any further questions.
