NUFORC Sighting 97710

Occurred: 1999-06-06 19:00 Local - Approximate
Reported: 2013-05-10 18:38 Pacific
Duration: 15-20 minutes
No of observers: 2

Location: Sacramento, CA, USA

Shape: Unknown
Characteristics: Lights on object

Stationary in sky for 15 minutes, then shot away into sky faster than sound, maybe as fast as light.

I simply saw an aircraft stay in one place for about fifteen minutes, then shoot off into the sky as fast as a beam of light lights a room. (There was a fellow there witnessing it with me at the time). It was far away, so the best description is that it did have what seemed to be saucer shaped lighting around the bottom of the craft. As one light to my left would come on, one on the right would go off. They were white light. I've no idea how something stationary could instantly propel away with such a great speed. From where we were, there was no contrail. I was too far away to hear or not hear any noise. There is high probability this craft was near Beale Air Force Base.

The best part of this story is what happened three days later. I saw another set of lights in the sky, moving slow over the city. This was however very very different then what I had seen before, so I decided to try to get under it. I entered the freeway and headed in the direction of the plane until I was able to get underneath it while exiting on 34th street. I slowed and stuck my head out to look up. It was a crop duster with white lights in rows along the entire surface area of the bottom of the wings. I feel this was to cover up the sighting three days earlier.

This happened in Sacramento, Ca, in summer of 1999.


Witness indicates that the date is approximate. PD
