Duration:20 seconds
I'm a truck driver and I've seen the reddish/orange balls of light before. But never this close. One passed over my truck from east to west on Highway 119 just outside of Taft, California, at 4:50 am today May 4th.

This was not an aircraft and it was not a Chinese lantern… There was no flicker of fire or blinking lights. I estimate it was less than a quarter mile above me, and maybe the size of a yoga ball.

I was able to grab my phone and snap 3 photos before it was out of view. The pictures are very interesting!!

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates "Taft, Indiana" in original report. We have amended that to "Taft, California." PD))
