Posted: 8/28/2003
Location: Modesto, CA
Shape: Changing
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A circular to a diamond shape object with red, blue, and yellow flashing lights hovering in the air.

My mom was letting the cat in when she saw an object (1), she came and got me and we saw (through binoculars) a circular shape that then changed to a diamond shape hovering in the air with red,blue,and yellow lights flashing. An airplane was passing by but when we looked at the object it looked nothing like an airplane or helicopter. It hovered for about 20 minutes but then started moving west at a consistant speed.

((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous. We believe that a celestial body, either a star or planet, would have to be ruled out, before we could conclude that the sighting had been caused by a "bona fide" UFO. PD))
