Duration: 10 minutes
No of observers: 4

Location: Santa Rosa, CA, USA

Shape: Sphere

Two very large glowing objects (one red, the other orange) stationary in the night sky, two appearances over about 15-20 minutes.

I, and three friends, were partying at my house in Santa Rosa that night. My home was located on the western edge of the city. We were in one of the rooms facing the field (a cow pasture) adjacent to my home. Two spherical objects appeared over the field, probably a quarter mile away. They were, and I am guessing here, about 100 yards across (the red one) and 80 yards across (the orange one), definitely too large to be balloons and surely not balloons as balloons do not glow in the dark like that. The light was coming from inside these objects.

We were simply awe-struck with comments like “Do you see that? What is that?” If we had out wits about us we would have found a camera but we could only look in awe. After about six minutes they disappeared. They did not fly away, they just disappeared. Another five minutes passed and they reappeared. They were not moving on either appearance, just hovering over the field probably 100 yards in the air. The night was pitch-black and these things were really bright. After another five minutes they disappeared and did not return although we stared in that direction for a long time.

Now, here is the spooky part. Nineteen years later a friend of mine I had known only a couple years casually told me that he had seen some UFOs in 1989. I took a chance and told him “I will describe what you saw,” and I gave him the description I have just recorded above. His jaw dropped and he told me that was exactly what he had seen, only he had seen them while camping out at the beach, a distance of about 20 miles from where the four of us had seen these objects.
