|Two bluish-green lights moving NNE over Arroyo Grande, CA at unbelievable speed.
On January 18, 2010, over Arroyo Grande, CA at 8:55 PM my assistant and I watched two lights flying eastward, approximately NNE. Both lights were bright and bluish-green.
One light was three times as wide as a “falling star”; the other light was a pinpoint, but completely observable. No sound.
The smaller light was below and to the left of the large light and remained in the same position as they moved. The large light left a trail from almost overhead (when first observed) to disappearance. The small light left no real trail.
They covered the distance from overhead to horizon (disappearance) in, say, less than 1/10th of a second. The disappearance judged to be two hand widths high.
The sky was clear; stars clearly seen. Both witnesses are adults. The lights were too blue and too fast to be from my planet.
