I've posted this account on another thread, but I think it applies here just as well. There are two distinct stories from last night that have been
jumbled together. The "meteor" that was seen from LA to Phoenix, and the zig-zagging lights (primarily reported in Southern California). Regarding the
latter, this is something I've seen before. One evening in September of ’06, I was leaving a buddy’s house in Fontana, CA when I looked to the
South and witnessed a light behaving in nearly the exact same manner as the one in this video. I called my buddy out to the yard, as well as his
family, and the five of us watched as it flew in straight lines, in all directions, making sharp ninety degree turns and stopping in midair for
seconds at a time. It was difficult to estimate its size, but it was close enough to see that the entire time it was very clearly engulfed in flame, a
“fireball” if you will. After some time flying around like this, it began to drop burning pieces off of itself that fell toward the ground, then
it appeared to fly away and disappeared.
One year later, within about a week of the date of the original sighting, I was leaving the SAME HOUSE and witnessed it again, with the same family.
All five of us watched it behave in almost exactly the same way. I can’t stress enough the coincidence of these two events.
Around Christmas of the following year I saw a news report very similar to the one above in which footage was shown from the helicopter patrol ship of
a San Diego area police department (I can’t remember exactly which one) that had a brand new, recent recording of the same thing on their FLIR.
“Experts” commented that it could have been anything from an amateur hot air balloon made from a candle and a plastic bag, to a small aircraft
with a fuel leak.
Needless to say, this could not possibly have been any kind of rotary or fixed wing aircraft, nor was it behaving in a way that would suggest any sort
of meteor or falling satellite.
For years I’ve been telling this story, constantly wondering and periodically searching the internet for similar sightings. Here it is once again...
