Location: Joshua Tree National Monument, CA
Shape: Formation
Duration:30 seconds
Midnight in Joshua Tree- Viewed 4 points of light in diamond-shaped formation as they stopped, spiraled in place, and disappeared.

Around May 28, 2004, I was out in Joshua Tree National Monument with friends. Around midnight, just inside the West Entrance to the park in an area called, "Hidden Valley Campground", I saw what I at first thought to be 4 satellites in perfect, diamond configured orbit. It seemed unlikely, but they were extremely high up, silent and moving very slowly.THEY RESEMBLED NOTHING ELSE I'D EVER SEEN. Then, they stopped moving altogether, with two of the "lights" spiraling out and then rejoining the formation. Then all 4 objects sped out in opposite directions, disappearing almost immediately.

Unfortunately I was alone at the time, and my reporting of the event to my friends resulted in so much laughter I dropped it, and would have let it go forever had my brother not insisted today I scour the web for info (I only just told him about it recently). After stumbling on a very similar account in your pages, I figured I'd pipe up.

I am a filmmaker and photographer, based in LA for 17 yrs.
