April 10, 2018, time 05:20 AM. I was driving my big rig southbound on interstate five. I noticed four what seem to be white clouds in a boxed area. There was a dull light in the center of the four clouds moving in a clockwise circular motion, as the light moved to the top It was getting brighter and turned into a large seem to be flares or sparklers that lit up the sky.

I was able to pull over in a wide spot and observe it closer this went on for approximately 20 minutes. I took my phone and tried to do a video but unfortunately it was too dark.

I have been driving truck for 23 years and 16 years as a deputy sheriff. I have never seen anything like this before… I did call California Highway Patrol and they took a report of the event.

Just estimating from my location it was probably 30,000 feet in the air and what appeared to be over Sacramento.


We spoke via telephone with the source of the report, and we found him to be unusually eloquent and sober-minded. We suspect that he is a skilled witness, and a highly reliable source of information. He described himself as a former law enforcement officer. PD
