ufo sighting in redlands, california

this whole event took place at approximately 10:30 p.m. a couple days before Thanksgiving 2001 in the town of Redlands, California. me and my sister were headed westbound on colton avenue to meet some friends at a bar when i noticed in the sky to the south of us an object hovering in the sky. it was an orange reddish glowing oval-shaped object. it was so bizarre i asked my sister to pull the car over so that see could see it too. when we pulled over we both got out of the car and stared at this thing in the sky. about a minute elapsed and this object appeared to be dropping things from it. About 30 comet-looking balls were dropped from the craft. i told my sister it looked as if it were deploying something. each of the "comets" fell at the same velocity but were deployed at irregular intervals. during the whole event the "ufo" wobbled there as it hung in the sky. after we stood there in awe of this thing for about ten minutes we freaked out and went home. we were convinced this was the end of the world.

of course it wasn't the end of the world. i called 911 and they laughed at me, but both me and my sister saw something neither one of us had ever seen or could comprehend. we are still convinced we saw a ufo. as i listened to peter speak on coast to coast am i had to email this in to the website.
