Location: Ft. Irwin, CA, USA

Shape: Light

Bright light turns night into day.


I just read an x-soldiers description of a glowing light in the desert at Ft Irwin, Ca. early 1992.

I'm a retired 1SG and my company from Ft. Ord CA. was attached to the red force and was in a defense position not far from the location on Ft Irwin know as, tip of the whale, on or about 0200hrs 04/01/1992.

My commander, myself and my supply sergeant were up talking about what we were going to do the next day when this bright light appeared which we first thought was a helicopter came over our position and stopped not to far from where we were. We thought the enemy had spotted our position and was taking a closer look.

The object seemed to slowly explode (for lack of a better term) in to a ball of ever increasing brightness. The light was so intense my supply sergeant turned his back on it.

I asked what was wrong. He said he thought it was the end of time taking place.

The light continued to increase over the next several minutes untill we could see all arround us, turning night into day, not quite like daylight but and orange glowing light.

By this time my whole company was awake and wanted to know what was going on.

The light stayed this way for many more minutes until it faded back into the night.

The next day I tried to find out what had happened. No one I talked to could tell me any thing about it.
