The witness and her sister were driving home from Monterey along Highway 1 near Marina at 6:40 p.m. on January 3, 2018.
“A red and blue flashing light appeared high up in the sky, moving toward a small glowing patch of yellow sky,” the witness reported. “It was around 6:40 p.m., and the rest of the sky was dark. The light flashed red and blue, moving steadily toward the glowing triangle, and once they met, the flashing light disappeared. Shortly thereafter, another flashing light appeared from around 30-degrees from the horizon, moved in the same way, and disappeared after a few seconds. The same thing happened again. A few minutes later, my sister and I were both startled by a steady lead-colored orb which appeared to be the size of a basketball hovering near us, perhaps around the height of a telephone pole. When we moved our gaze slightly to the left, we saw another one, and realized that we could see about seven lead-colored orbs seemingly strung together getting farther off into the distance. We lost sight of these as we continued driving, constructing our perception that they were stationary.”
California MUFON Field Investigator Jerry Gerow closed this case as an Unknown-Other.
