I've thought of that but I dont think so. on this one I'll need ats help. it was at about 20 degrees elevation. not scintillating. bright
I figure it could possibly be an aircraft on approach cause it had a similar intensity and was the same size. about as big as venus. and then the
winking out was from it turning sharply away. but I figure in perfect 34 degree cold desert air with zero clouds I woulda seen running/nav lights, or
star board and port lights.
then I thought maybe a flare. but I've seen those and it wasn't one of those.
literally I was sky watching looked towards a constellation and all was fine. the constellation had a dominant bright star at its base. I look away
to scan other parts of they sky. look back a minute later and the dominant star has this bright venus like light of yellowish red hue right next to
it. about as close as pollux & castor stars are to each other. looked like it was in the atmosphere and only a few miles away. 20-30 at best.
bout the size of Venus but much brighter. it stayed perfectly in position relative to this other star. watched it for a few minutes (bout two) going
wtf is that. me and my buddy just looking up at it wondering. thinking and saying to each other "that was not there a second ago" and it doesn't
look like anything I can think of. it seemed to get slighty brighter or more intense as the few minutes ticked by then it literally, simply,
blinked out. never to be seen again. wasn't slightly climbing or descending or anything else that would impart the sense of movemrnt. just hung
there perfectly still and crisp.
it was in the direction of China lake. I was camped between edwards and China lake somewhere off the 14 by red Rick Ricardo jawbone.
still don't know what it was. was interesting though.
also some f18 according to the deputy who got a better look at it was flying low around that area earlier in the day. so that was cool too.
Leos out there have seen the green lady too.. described the light just right. say they see it often enough. amazing what the locals see out the
hoping sonebody can give me an idea of what it was i saw. could have been mundane for all I know but it sure was noteworthy.
btw if you like challanging hiking try nightmare gulch. I can barely walk today because of it. she is aptly named. just bring tons of water and an
extra bare of shoes. lots of basalt and sandstone you'll be climbing all over.
