|Burning object in Night Sky over Redding, CA 11/09/2007
At 10:45PM My daughter an I were driving down our street. As we neared our driveway, we noticed a neighbor of ours looking at something he saw up in the cloudy sky.
I saw it about 30 seconds before I noticed the neighbor looking at the light in the sky as I thought it was the Highway Patrol helicopter that had been flying around all evening.
The cloud deck was about 2500 feet as reported on the NOTAMS for our local airspace.
As my daughter and I got out of the car, we both looked up at the "glowing object" that was making NO sound. We both noticed that it looked to be on fire as it "floated" southward at a very slow rate of speed.
The object got bright with flames, then almost appeared to be extinguished. This repasted over 20 times.
The object slowly changed course to the North West direction as it started to fall apart, emitting sparks and flames as it disappeared into the clouds to the North West part of Redding, CA.
This object made NO noise and was moving very slowly between the ground and the cloud cover.
My wife and two daughters were witnesses to this which lasted 4 to 6 minutes.
Very strange as we were hoping it would be on the 11 O'clock news, but there were no other reports of the strange object in the sky?
