You have to wonder about the condition of the people who think they saw a UFO in the wee hours of New Years Eve. But before doubt sets in, to their credit, there were people in several cities who saw the same lights. Could this be the real thing?
ABC News reported on January 3rd that air authorities have confirmed that there wasn't any "unusual flight activity" so that might mean that the people who were seeing lights, could have really been seeing something in the form of an alien space craft.
"I seen like six bright orange colored lights. They were almost like in a diamond or triangle shape. It was weird. And so they started just separating," said Kaye Pinlac who took video on his iPhone. Others reported seeing similar lights in the sky but it was the way that the lights moved, witnesses said, that suggested these weren't fizzled fireworks or falling stars.
The cities that have claimed seeing these "strange lights" were Stockton, Sacramento and Auburn. Reports from all the people who called in or were interviewed claim to have seen something similar: Hovering lights in a pattern that moved together like some sort of object in the sky.
"It was bright enough to shine directly through the trees without any problem seeing it. Whatever it was moved up and to the left… It hovered there for probably about 60 seconds, then it took off at a high rate of speed," Mr. Pinlac added.
What is the most eerie (and almost believable) of all is that these possible UFO sightings came just days after a mysterious crop circle was discovered in the state.
On the other hand, the Quadrantid Meteor Shower had already started on that very night and expected to peak on Thursday night. Could it be the New Year's celebrations made these meteors just look like UFO's - surely not everyone was inebriated though.
When you have more than one person seeing the same thing, and something as detailed and intricate as the crop circle that showed up in a farmer's field - it kind of makes you wonder, and hope, and then wonder some more. Could it really be?
