I live in Indio California in a rural part of the city. I am posting this not as a UFO sighting but to see if anyone has any thoughts, or have seen
anything similar to what i saw last night. 5-30-2008
around 9:30pm i was taking my daughter to her dads house.
I live in a gated mobile home community. across the street from me is a date palm tree field and to the left of me is the indio polo grounds, to the
right is a few gated communities and palm trees and rural environment. this is a no street light zone, meaning the desert cities do not allow street
lights in certain area because they dim out the stars.
this light from where i was could have been maybe 1-2 feet in diameter.
I was heading to the Gate to leave the park and to my left i see a red pulsing light, it was an odd red, not like an airplane or helicopter light red,
almost like a deep red, it had a slow pulse to it and when it pulsed there was a white glow that came in to it, I would say the pulse of the light was
maybe every 2-3 seconds,
when i first saw the light it was stationary just hovering, not moving at all, it was level with the telephone pole on the corner of the park.
the aprox distance from me to the light was maybe 100 feet if that.
as i approached the gate to leave I stopped to look at this light, and all of a sudden it moved to the west, it took a small dip and then rose again,
at this point i though it was a remote control airplane but then that idea stopped when i saw it fly away from the park very quickly.
My 15 year old daughter who is not a believer in UFOs or anything unearthly, said "No mom its not a UFO!". I had not said anything at all, up to
this point i was in quiet contemplation as to what i was seeing. so My daughter saw this and knew it was also unusual. I then asked her, "then what
is it?" and she said "I don't know, but i don't want to think about it right now".
I left the community and made a right hand turn to the stop sign, maybe 200 yards away, made another right hand turn to the west and was watching this
light glide way fast from where i was.
I was on a rural road with a polo field and no other lights around, this light was moving extremely fast to the north west, our valley coachella
valley is a flat zone and there are mountains that circle the valley, so you can see a big distance from where i was, as this light moved it never
rose higher than tree or telephone pole height. by the time i drove out of the park and to the west driving road this light would have been close to
our major freeway aprox 15-20 miles away.
I did not see any airplanes nor helicopters, this was ONE light. I did not hear any airplanes or helicopters or remote control airplanes for these
are very loud.
what has been with me since last night is the fact this light was not attached to anything i could see, if it was a drone, its possible i did not see
the structure attached to it.
the questions in my head are,
If its a ufo why does it need a light, unless it was a night vision light, or an infrared light, but then this tends to make me think earthy
what was this light attached to?
It made no sound.
It moved at extreme steady speed, almost gliding.
It hovered, it was stationary when i first saw it.
I would love some feedback or discussion as to what i maybe saw or if anyone has seen anything recently like this.
