Object seen off of U.S. Highway 14 at low altitude moving north.

January 2, 2018. This report is being filed from Rosamond, California.

Daylight conditions: partially cloudy.

Today at 10:20 AM, while traveling south bound on U.S. Highway 14, approximately between Avenues D and E, an object was spotted at an estimated distance of ¼ mile above the highway. First impressions were that it was a large bird like duck or sea gull. As I kept my attention on the object, it became clear to me that it was not a bird, but perhaps an aircraft.

Seconds later, the object is now about two hundred feet ahead of my car, and moving alongside the highway about 150 feet parallel to the highway. As the object flies by my right hand view moving straight with a speed less than my 65 MPH, I can now see that it’s an object about fifty feet in altitude.

The object is chrome skinned, appearing smooth, and not a conventional aircraft. I can only estimate that it’s an object about 20 feet in length with an equal height in a pyramid shape.

No audible sound was heard from this object as it came at the closest position to my car. Highway 14 was unusually heavy with traffic as many are now returning home from the holidays. Others had to have seen this object.
