The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
i was driving from a job site around bodega to my home in lower lake. i was on the road directly in front of the schoolhouse which was filmed in the hitchcock movie “the birds.” this is why i know the exact location. i noticed these blueish lights just above the hilly horizon. i didn’t think much of it at first. i drove another quarter mile and the lights seemed strange enough to me that i pulled over to observe because the lights did not appear stationary yet were not moving in a single direction as if an airplane yet were above the horizon enough to appear airborne. i could not determine the true distance from my position as the lights seemed to be changing in pattern, direction, and brightness. they changed from very distinct poinpoints to a hazy blur (possibly due to weather conditions but i couldn’t be sure). i remember my main reason for pulling over was that i couldn’t determine how close the lights were.
after observing only a few minutes it became clear that these lights were attached to a dark object. i was never able to determine the exact shape of the object since it simply was something that obscured the sky behind it which was also black/dark. i remember thinking it must be a helicopter as they were not moving as an airplane would. there was no sound at all. as i continued watching i became less and less sure of what this could be. i just knew it was not like anything i had ever witnessed so it held my fascination for quite some time. (maybe 30 min. at most). it seemed very large. i kept hoping it would either dip behind the hilly horizon or in front of it so i could gauge the distance. i remember saying out load numerous times “what is that?”
finally the object made several extremely fast movements left to right and up and down. i remember in the time it took me to say out loud one more time “what the h___ is that” it was gone. i remained a few minutes more to see if it would return but it did not. i scratched my head figuratively, got back in my car and continued home. i didn’t give it much thought other than wondering what it may have been.
here is another element which later bewildered me: the drive home was normally about 1.5 hours. i observed the object just after dusk (approx. 6-8 pm). i drove straight home. upon arrival my wife, who had already gone to bed, asked me what had taken so long. i replied “nothing” then looked at the clock and it was 4am. i again didn’t give it much thought and went to bed. at the time i never even mentioned the object and pretty much just forgot about it as i didn’t know what it was.
over the years i have often thought about it and just chalked it up to a strange night. i am filing this because it was unidentified, it was flying, and it was an object. that’s about it.
i will also add that i have had numerous nightmares about “aliens” coming in/around my house. i normally don’t dream at all, ever, but i have had this type of dream alot (once or twice a year) and it only stands out because as i said i rarely dream at all. i’m sure its nothing and i’m not trying to imply anything. its probably a common dream subject by many people.
hope this is not a waste of your time. thank you.
