Shape: Chevron
Duration:10 minutes
incomplete V formation of red flashing lights flying.

at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Friday, November 14, 2008, my husband I observed a sort of inverted, check-marked shape, or incomplete V, assembly of red lights fly across the sky.

this was in the west los angeles, california area, and the assemblage of lights flew from south to north.

at the point of the V, there was one bright light. my husband thought it was actually a cluster of three lights.

on the west side of the V, the short side, there were perhaps three to four lights. on the east side, the longer side, there may have been five to eight lights. incredibly, i did not count them! there was no "body" to the lights - as they passed over the sky, we could see them pass over the stars, so it looked like a very well-controlled flying formation of red lights that blinked and flashed (except for the central, large light).

if this "formation" flew in a more or less straight line, it would have passed directly over or to the west of los angeles international airport, and then after it passed over us, it was to the east of santa monica airport.


((ADDENDUM FROM SAME WITNESS))

follow up

I am not reporting a new sighting - i am commenting on my original report of November 14. I was checking your site today and see that you posted my report (and isn't it odd how i feel somewhat validated for reporting the sighting?!). anyway, i also see that (from my perspective anyway), a family north of us saw the same craft and then someone in the bay area saw the same craft... i don't know what to think of all of these sightings being completely ignored by most of civilization…
