Location: Northern California, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:4 Minutes
The light made no sound then split into two lights.

I JUST found this sight. If I'd known about it then I'd know better the date and maybe the location. My husband and I were driving on I-5 in Northern CA on our way to Southern Oregon for vacation. The sky was dark. Hills to our left, fields to our right. A bright light (like from a police helocoptor) flew very, very low over the highway just in front of us. It made no noise at all. No real shape we could see. Just a huge ball of light. It crossed the highway and I watched it go into a field near a house which had on a yard light high on a pole. It was too dark to see what was in the field around the house but when the light passed the house and went over the field it split into two lights which seemed to dance over the field. I asked my husband to pull over so I could continue to watch but he said there was no place to pull over and to stop would not be safe (because of possible other cars coming up behind us). You'd think the splitting of the light would be the oddest part but the quiet was the strangest part to me.
