Location: Chico, CA
Shape: Disk
Duration:~18 minutes
9 Very brightly lit (red and yellow) saucer shaped crafts. Total time about 18 minutes.

At approximately 10:01 pm in Chico, California, I first viewed a very bright red light with a yellow one in the center. I had walked out on the back porch and was watching this thing move very rapidly through the sky.

I called my wife out to see if she could recognize what this thing was. It was moving very fast. There was NO way these were military flares because they were so bright but not only moving toward the North but were also rapidly moving upward until it blanked out of sight. I would guess this object was between 10,000 and 15,000 feet up.

We thought the sight was over until about 15 seconds later a second one appeared and looked as if it was going a little faster but lower, then five to 8 seconds later a third appeared, then a fourth. We tentatively watched these things wondering what they were. I did call 911 and operator took the report and was teasing a little like we were seeing things until the 911 center started to light up. I hung up with 911 and continued watching with my wife when in about 5 minutes went by and 911 called me back and gave me the number for the National UFO Reporting Center. I didn’t know this even existed.

We continued watching these “things” go by. We moved out into our parking lot where we could see with a completely unobstructed view. I a total of 15 minutes went by after 911 called back, my wife and I witnessed a total of (9) nine of these very strange and very fast moving craft. I would guess these things (crafts) or what ever they were, was moving Northward at what I am guessing to be about between 4 to 5 times the speed of sound. Not even a sound was heard but as they were going by so fast, again heading Northward but also climbing upward rapidly until they completely blinked out of sight. Yes, I will be very honest with you, I would really like to know what they were. (Very Curious.)

I felt strange reporting what I saw because I know the operator thought at first I was some kind of a nut. Then she said the 911 lines were all lighting up. They, (these strange crafts) appeared to have 5 maybe 6 very, very bright red lights with a very bright yellow one in the center. I have NEVER seen any military craft be able to move that fast and have that bright of lights under them. There was NO aircraft strobe lights and way, way too bright to be aircraft marker lights. After minutes of watching them, I was all worked up but now see no more objects in the sky.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness on two occasions, and he seemed to us to be a very sober-minded individual. He reported during one of those conversations that the individual objects were appeared approximately the same size of a full Moon in the night sky, so they were quite prominent in the night sky. PD))
