UFO Sightings News: California is being hit with a rash of UFO reports. On Jan. 10, an eyewitness submitted a report to the Mutual UFO Network about strange lights that were visible just below the moon. The UFO was initially thought to be a star.
A man out with his daughter saw two lights appear below the moon that he now believes are UFOs. At first father thought it was a star. He said "I was noticing what appeared to be 2 stars below the moon. I then noticed that the lower star started moving left to right and quickly noticed another star-like light below it suddenly appear and seem to be moving in unison." His daughter agreed saying "What the heck was that, that wasn't normal, did we just see UFOs?"
The man said the three lights were moving too slow to be shooting stars.
There were multiple sightings of UFOs over California on New Year's Eve.
UFO sightings were reported all across California on New Year's morning. Some people thought the annual fireworks display was a little too out of this world and there were multiple UFO reports across the state. An woman from Orangeville says she may have the anwers behind the mystery.
Cathy Adams said she reviewed internet and news reports of the Califonia UFOs and did a little research. She concluded that the UFOs that people saw all over the state on New Year's Even were actually sky lanterns.
Adams says "I actually found it New Year's morning and I didn't know what it was. I have never seen anything like it before."
Adams said she doesn't know who released the sky lanterns, but she warns could be a fire danger especially during this dry winter season. The lanterns require flames to produce the energy needed to take off. She said "They are always telling us on the news that wildfire can start with a simple spark, then why are we having these things fly around in the sky."
Witnesses say the lights over California wasn't fireworks, but a UFO.
The UFO sightings weren't just isolated to California. UFO sightings were also reported in North Carolina. Federal authorities said there has been no "unusual flight activity" in California.
Witnesses say that they saw four to six "unusual-looking" lights. California UFO sightings were reported all across California, including Stockton, Sacramento, and Auburn. The reports came few days after the discovery of a crop circle in Salinas, Calif.
Kaye Pinlac of Stockton told ABC News affiliate News 10 "I seen like six bright orange colored lights. They were almost like in a diamond or triangle shape. It was weird. And so they started just separating."
Pinlac said he caught the lights on a video on his phone.
Steven Brown told ABC News that he saw the same lights in Sacramento, "Well, we saw it right through the trees. It was bright enough to shine directly through the trees without any problem seeing it. Whatever it was moved up and to the left... It hovered there for probably about 60 seconds, then it took off at a high rate of speed."
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor claims no UFO sightings were reported, "There was no unusual flight activity reported Tuesday night."
Terry and Hans Mauth told News 10 they saw the same thing over Auburn. Mauth said "No sound, no blinking lights, just this big illuminated form."
A 2008 UFO sighting over the Sacrament Valley was revealed to be an airplane with an electric sign under the wings.
