At roughly 20:55 on Thursday night, my wife and I were lying in bed with the windows open. We both heard an odd sound in our normally quiet high altitude pine forest neighborhood. It sounded like people chanting, but quite eerie. Then we heard what sounded like gun shots. We have coyotes and bears in the neighborhood, and so I questioned if our neighbor was scaring some animals off, but these noises were definitely not the typical animal sounds we have heard in the past.

So, I went out to see if I could see anything. I walked out the back porch without turning on the light. I couldn’t hear anything. I was facing Northeast. I saw multiple blue lights (orbs?) above me in the sky. The sky was cloud-free and not much of a wind. There was no moon light out. We live away from much light pollution. These blue lights were moving smoothly, quickly and intertwining. I though initially someone had shot off a firework or flare, but the sound was quiet.

The lights moved directionally, then I noticed they straightened out and shot up toward above the back peak and toward the Reno area. The blue lights then seem to make themselves look like stars.

During this time there was a bigger object following slightly behind and amongst them. If I remember correctly it was round or oval. I think it was translucent and had various lights on it. These lights were yellow, red, and blue and seemed to glow. Again no sound was heard.

I don’t remember where it went or if it just disappeared over the pine trees. I could not judge how big it was but I had a feeling it was rather close to the ground and not too big. If it were not for the preceding blue lights I would have thought this to possibly be a big drone, but this was not.

The entire sighting lasted at my best guest 5-10 seconds. There was some road construction occurring above our neighborhood on the Hwy 431 and they usually have many lights to help them work, but I could not see their lights.

I can truly say I saw something that was unidentified. The closest military base is over 50 miles away Northeast of us in Fallon.

I am hoping others post this sighting.
