NUFORC Sighting 117131

Occurred: 2015-02-03 09:30 Local
Reported: 2015-02-03 11:04 Pacific
Duration: ~2 seconds
No of observers: 3

Location: Anderson, CA, USA

Shape: Orb
Characteristics: Lights on object, Aura or haze around object

One orb of light shooting away from the smoke, another orb of light behind smoke, and one beam of light coming from top of the smoke.

The 3 of us were at Walmart, and right next to Walmart is some sort of factory that always has white smoke coming from these giant pipes. I wanted to take a picture of the smoke in the sky, and so I did.

But when I went back to review, in the picture it looked like some sort of orb of light was shooting out and away from the white smoke. There was another orb of light inside or behind the smoke, it looked as if it was not moving.

There was also a beam of light coming from the top of the smoke.


We suspect that the stripe of light that appears to be radiating from the top of a column of steam is a lens flare, caused by the camera's being pointed at the Sun, but we cannot be certain. PD
