|About 23:45 hrs, my wife and I were sitting on the couch and overheard a commotion in our backyard. I turned off my TV to hear a group of people raising their voice. I walked to our backyard to find out what was going on and overheard a party adjacent to our house. I then heard several male adults yelling in a very excited voices,”What is that”? One male voice yelling, “I think it’s a hot air balloon”? And then another saying, “No way, it’s going to fast.” I walked out from under my patio cover and looked up towards Mt. Baldy area. The sky was overcast with low clouds. When I looked up, I caught a glimpse of a bright light through the cloud cover traveling from West to East. Just as I focused on it the light went out and then 2 seconds later it lit up again. It looked to me like a bright orange ball of light. It was traveling at a high speed parallel to the 210 FWY. I know this was not a Jet airliner because of the speed, the close proximity to the mountains, and the absence of noise coming from it.
