we saw a round bright light in the sky, it had no flashing lights. it did not seem to move very fast. after a few min we saw the bright light drop two round red things underneath it. after this the object started moving. we lost sight of it.

After a movie on easter sunday, my girlfriend and i saw a light on the drive home. this light had no blinking lights which is why it caught my attention. i think the time was between 12 and 1 am. we pulled over and observed the light for a little bit. we could tell that it was moving but not very fast. we were in yucaipa and we figured it could have been over redlands, highland or san bernadino which are pretty big cities in california, so i figured someone else had to have seen it. the object seemed to stop and just sit there. after this i seen one red ball drop from this object. when i saw this i turned to my girl and asked if she just saw that and she said she saw another red ball drop when i turned, so it drop two red balls. the red balls did not appear directly underneath the light, there was a gap between the object by the time we seen the red balls. the balls were only visible for only a second or two and then disappeared. after this happened the object started moving and we lost it because it went below the hill line. we drove to a higher position to chase it but by time we got to the hill it had disappered. we couldnt tell what direction it went because we lost it so quick. i wanted to report this to the newspaper that next day but i figured that they wouldnt take me seriously, just as my friends did. after i saw a report on the news last night i knew i could report it here and be taken seriously. i had no video or photos of the incident but i know that what i seen was definitly not a satellite, star, heicopter, or an airplane as i know them.
