Duration:10 seconds
I drive 5 days a week from Yucca Valley to Apple Valley on highway 18. Tonight I saw an amber colored light over the eastern mountains. It hovered briefly then became brighter. It moved very fast at a 45 degree angle and rushed toward the ground. It was moving so fast I thought it was a meteor. As it traveled down, behind it appeared 5 other amber lights. These lights did not move, but remained stationary in the path of the light. The moving amber light stopped briefly then shot up very quickly in a semi circular path leaving more lights. At the top it stopped again and dove straight down with no additional lights. The lights that were on went off in succession. During my drive thru the desert I have seen meteorites, and shooting stars. I have seen flares over the base in 29 Palms. This was unlike anything I have ever witnessed.
