Posted: 4/27/2004
Location: Oakland, CA
Shape: Light
Duration: 40 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I saw the lights in an arrow formation over San Francisco for 40 minutes and they didn't move an inch.

Peter asked that we tell him about sightings that we've seen at any time in our lives on Coast to Coast last Friday. So, here it is.

I was driving home from work around late March in 1994. I can't remember the exact date, but I do know that it was early spring and about 5 pm and it was still light. I was driving home from Richmond thru Berkeley to Oakland, CA on Highway 80 which runs along SF Bay. There was a HUMONGOUS traffic jam and it took forever, which is why I was looking at the sky. I was bored. There, in the sky, and it looked to be over the southern part of San Francisco was a number (7?) of lights in an arrow formation. One of the arrow pieces was missing. I looked up a few minutes later and it was still there. I kept thinking it might be airforce planes or helicoptors, but those things move. These stayed in one place. Well, the lights stayed in that place about 40 minutes (the time it took me to get through the traffic jam). I finally had to turn off to another highway and lost sight.

I knew it was wierd but didn't have a clue as to what I saw. Then, several years later when Art Bell was on, and Whitley Streiber was a guest, they were discussing UFO's. I was in bed listening. Whitley mentioned that UFO formations are commonly seen in an arrow formation. Man, I sat up in bed like a bat out of hell!! Wow. I sometimes tell peole about this and they look at me funny. All except my best friend, who said to me "If you say you saw it then I know you did". What a friend.
