Location: Bakersfield, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 1 minute
Black triangular object moving slowly through the night sky.

One triangular object was seen around one o'clock, summer time, 1998. I was sixteen at the time. My 2 younger sisters and I were sleeping on our large outside trampoline. Bakersfield gets very warm during the summer time. I would always stare up at the stars hoping to see shooting stars or more, I was an avid Art Bell listener at the time. All of a sudden I saw the stars being masked by something very large. It was very slow moving and made no sounds. There was no lights on this object. I was in awe at how big it was. It was kind of hard to stay focused on it because it blended in with the sky so well. I am not sure how far up it was but it looked pretty low. About a minute passed and it moved over the trees of my backyard and I could no longer see it. I am 22 now and just learning of other people who have seen a similar object. I am excited that I get to post this sighting after 7 years of telling my friends and family of this odd happening.
