Was someone, or something, else enjoying the fireworks on New Years Eve? That is the question that many California residents are asking themselves, after several mysterious lights were spotted in the sky.
Reports flooded in all over the state of California, after witnesses said they saw strange lights, that had nothing to do with the fireworks, floating in the sky. Many believe the lights were from a UFO.
“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 of Stockton.
Terry and Hans Mauth of Auburn say that they watched the lights, which they described as egg-shaped. "There was no sound, that's the funny thing," Terry said. "Just this big illuminated form." One possible explanation was that people had released luminaria light bags. However, Terry dismissed that explanation saying, "It was too huge to be a birthday balloon or something like that. And it moved too quickly."
Steven Brown of Sacramento says that he saw something similar hovering above Belle Cooledge Park. "Whatever it was moved up and to the left," he explained. "It hovered there for probably about 60 seconds, then it took off at a high rate of speed."
Residents are still waiting for an official explanation on what they saw on New Years. Was it, in fact, a UFO, or is there a much more logical and simple explanation?
