Note: I am an avid night sky watcher and astronomy novice; due to this fact, before publishing this report, and directly after my sighting, I attempted to debunk what I saw, before categorizing it as an unidentified object flying (UFO).

Incident: At approximately 23:30 on September 06, 2019, I witnessed a UFO flying at a very high altitude and at a rather slow speed with a NE flight path. When the flashing object first caught my eye, I thought I was seeing maybe a meteor or a falling star; it seemed star-like as it flew closer toward my location. I thought this as I know the night sky during the beginning of fall brings such occurrences. However, because I do study night skies and am aware of certain astronomical happenings, it did not seem likely a falling star or meteor.

After I realized it was no star or meteor I looked up flight plans and the flight schedule(s) of my local Meadows’ Field Airport in Bakersfield, CA, and found nothing. The local airport was closed for the evening and by the look of the craft, I knew immediately it was no plane or jet. The object had no “jet” stream, was flashing, the animals were stir-crazy, it flew very close to the ground without causing one thing on the ground to move from its force, as well as the fact that it did not make one sound as it passed above and then beyond my location. These facts coupled with the shape of the craft led me to conclude it was most likely an UFO. I could not believe what I was seeing and rubbed my eyes several times all the while gasping at the closeness and vividness of my encounter. I did not have a camera at the time, but I will describe specifically the appearance of the craft below.

Description: Initially the craft looked star like in shape with white and blue lights flashing in an almost aura-like way. As the craft stayed in continuous motion, I began to realize it was a craft of some sort with a seeming flight plan. Instead of star-like, the closer the craft got to my location; I began to see it was triangular in shape and was flashing not only white and blue but read as well. I noticed the lights were also in the shape of a triangle seemingly lining the bottom of the craft; however, it was not until it flew directly over my head and beside me that I also noticed it had what seemed like a second craft or maybe it was the top half of the object, floating above the one below with a tethering of what seemed like a strand of lights which were not flashing but pulsating. The object flew so low to the ground I was concerned as to what might happen as it was flying rather flying rather slow. When the object was in my direct path, I noticed it was dead silent! and did not fly straight as it seemed to drift from side to side sometimes in a half circle and seemingly around obstructions. Once the craft passed my line of view I watched where it would go next and it seemingly disappeared once it hit a certain point by my location. I had a feeling I was to see more that night and I did of which I have video and will submit with my second and final sighting.
