I just saw something I’ve never seen before in my life, and I’ve no explanation for it. At precisely 8 PM, a few minutes ago, I saw a sort of strung-out cloud of flashing red lights, like strobe lights, repeating rapidly, and roughly 15 to 20 of them flashing away, moving through the sky. This apparition moved at a fairly rapid pace as I could see that the size of the flashing area was shrinking as it moved around to the right of my view. Growing smaller with distance, in other words. It came from the northwest and moved southeast. All those red lights were flashing randomly, there was no order to them, no pattern. Aircraft lights always have a pattern, an order, you can tell where the wings and so forth are. With this thing there was none. However, a general shape was defined by the lights. It was pointed at the ends, rounded above and below at the center, like two shallow bowls together, one upright and one inverted. Disc shaped, assuming I was viewing it on edge or close to it.
This is nighttime in the desert, and outside of a dog barking, there was no sound. No aircraft sound. Nothing. Yet when I first saw it, it had to be pretty close to me. It moved silently.
As I watched it I was trying to get an idea of it’s size, as it was plainly huge, and I believe it was about a half mile across. That’s roughly 2800 feet across.
I’ve seen B-1 bombers, this was much larger. What the hell did I see?
