Sighting Report
Occurred : 5/9/2006 05:09 (Entered as : 05/09/06 05:09)
Reported: 5/9/2006 8:20:51 AM 08:20
Posted: 5/15/2006
Location: San Jose, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 minutes
An artifically created cloud masks a bright light, then light and cloud disappear.

Myself and a Co-Worker observed a vortex type cloud and then a bright light shining through the east end of the cloud. The light suddenly disappeared and was never seen again.

The cloud remained for approx. 2 minutes then dissipated. We never saw any object go out of that cloud. Sky was clear and no other clouds were in the sky at this time.

Because of the cloud, the estimated distance was about 2 miles out and about 1500 ft. high. The area that this was observed is about 5 miles from the NASA-Ames research center at Moffit Field.

I will contact the local area authorities to see if anybody else reported seeing this.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness, and he seemed to us to be quite credible, and quite willing to share all the information he could about the event. PD))
