Sighting of V shaped craft over Sacramento, California on 5/28/00 by three witness'.

I went out to close the tuff shed, after locking the shed I looked up to the north. I saw a strobing light (It strobed only twice) then it went out. Then a very bright light came on then faded out, there was a distance between the strobing light and the bright light. No other lights were present. Then it was gone. (No blue or red lights like on a airplane). I went inside my house and told my wife and our friend, I saw something really strange, and they followed me outside immediately, we were looking to the west. I was telling them what I had just saw. Then I said look at that, and pointed my finger up and we saw a V shaped craft (7 lights in a V shape) it headed west to east. It seemed to be just one object. All the lights were the same brightness and size. We watched the object for about 7 to 10 seconds as it traveled to the east very quickly and silently and then if just disappeared. There was no sound at all. My wife and our friend stayed outside looking for the object as I went inside and looked at the time (It was 10:32 pm) and I called Peter Davenport immediately. We all stayed outside for some time after the sighting and observed several aircraft in the area. This object was definitely not an airplane or like anything any of us had ever seen before. (Our house is located about 2 miles east of McCellan Airforce Base.) The witness' were myself (Age 37 - Communications Technician) my wife (Age 37 - Stay at home mom) and our friend of 23 years (Age 36 - Insurance Agent) who was visiting from the Redding area with her 2 daughters for the holiday weekend.


NUFORC Note--We spoke with this witness at length, and we found him to be a good witness. We have no idea what the observers witnessed. PD
