To begin myself, my stepdad and a friend of mine were working in Santa Rosa on a commercial building and were sleeping on site.It was sunday evening/monday morning,we had just arrived there from a 5 hour drive,usually we slept in a van conversion but it was in the shop so we were in my compact car,it was still warm so my stepdad and friend decided to bed down outside,I was going to recline my seat and get a few hours before work started,I had my eye's closed for maybe 2 or 3 minutes when best as I can describe a feeling or a sense "forced" me to open my eyes and look to the north where I saw a "star" begin to "dance" in the sky, at first it was very slight and grew increasingly more pronounced,going from say where the sun is at 2 o'clock right down to the horizon,sometimes straight sometimes in a tight spiral,down then back up again for about five minutes,once i convinced myself I wasn't dreaming I woke my stepdad and friend,they looked and confirmed that I wasn't seeing things,but were more interested in sleeping so dozed off again.More curious by now I grabbed my binoculars and watched some more, but now there were 3 of them,they held a triangular shape which seemed solid now, and continued to "dance",but now they or it was "dancing" evreywhere,up/down,side to side,spinning,blinking in and out of view at lightning speed,when I looked without the binos it appeared as a triangular shaped object,but with them I could see 3 seperate spheres,that didn't appear to be connected to each other(I could see stars between them).The spheres themselves were "thirded",rows of lights in the middle third and the "thirds" were rotating or spinning..the top and bottom counterclockwise,the middle clockwise.Ok here it gets weirder,the sky was clear except in the northeast just above the foothills a small thundertorm was heading inland,from where we were you could see clear night sky and the storm heading up the mountains in the NE,with the binos I could see the middle row portions firing lights or somethin! g into t he storm clouds periodically,when they did this lightning would flash in the clouds,this went on for about an hour and then suddenly even more "stars" began to shoot in from all directions of the sky to begin thier own "dance",some stayed as single spheres others coalesced as more triangles,for about thirty minutes new ones would come in,it was quite a sight to behold let me tell you,i watched absolutely mesmerized for roughly 3 more hours at this time 2 of the triangular configurations kind of blended into a "star of david" shape and appeared to move right towards me when they got as near as I could say within 1000 ft above me and an 1/8th of mile away I could see what looked like a 5 to 6 thousand foot across object now and it was "cloaked" for lack of a better word, in a star field,that is to say when looking directly at it now I saw night sky ,but blurred somehow like a mirage effect,it hovered for a few minutes thenbegan to drift away slowly at first then faster then "poof"..gone,when it did that all the rest of the "star" which had been "dancing" in the background shot away in all directions as well.To conclude since seeing this my life has never been the same..i wont elaborate on that sorry.
