Oval-shaped aircraft with red and white lights, making a distinct buzzing sound, hovers over the Palmdale, CA, desert for 10 min..
We were walking my dogs in the desert. It was dark and we had just started walking into my neighborhood from the desert.
I noticed an odd sound coming from a long wall that encloses houses, separating them from the desert. At first I thought there was something in the bushes. It was an electrical sound, kind of like bees buzzing; or water running, or, a rattle-snake sound. It was a distinct, loud buzzing vibration that I couldn't figure out.
I commented on it to my boyfriend walking behind me. He pointed out a craft with red and white lights in a southwest position in the sky, but I kept focusing on the sound below. The more I followed the sound vibrating in the bushes along the wall, it seemed to keep moving with me.
Finally, I realized it was coming from the space craft above us, and the sound from it was vibrating below. I had originally figured this aircraft was an airplane of some kind but upon closer observation, I realized that it was unusual how it w! as hovering in the same spot for several minutes and not moving. It was an oval shape, and the lights and sound were the most distinctive features. I kept watching it for a long time and then it suddenly turned off its lights and headed in a bee-line toward the mountains, which was in a western direction.
I continued to hear the unusual vibration while it became softer, and observed a dim light and shaped of the craft as it disappeared over the San Gabriel Mountains. It moved rather fast too.
I later speculated that it was definitely a UFO and neither one of us had ever seen anything like it before, and we are elderly. It also seemed to me that it may have been using some kind of ultra-sound to take pictures of the terrain below, or was looking for something. It even occurred to me that it was possibly a craft using vibration or super ultra-sound to levitate. I had heard of experiments in this area a while back.
My boyfriend and I were both amazed by this experience. I felt unthreatened by it, at the time of the experience, and my dogs did not seem disturbed by it, but they did seem to notice the sound that we heard and were curious about it too.
Later at home, I started feeling a little uneasy at the possibility of what it could have been. I looked up some images of UFO sightings and there was one that correlated with what we saw; an oval-shaped craft with red and white lights. The entire experience lasted for about 10 minutes.
