Sighting Reports 2006

Two Witnesses See Bright Red Object Moving Slowly & Then Rapidly Increased Speed

Date of Sighting: January 1, 2006
Time of Sighting: 12:10 AM PST
Duration of Sighting: Unknown
Date Reported: January 1, 2006
Location of Sighting: Spring Valley, California. (Suburb East-Northeast of San Diego)
Latitude:  32.75 Degrees North
Longitude: 117.0 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Two
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One
Partly cloudy skies.  (Had Been Raining Earlier.)

Description (In Witness's Own Words With Minor Edits):
I was outside with a friend when he noticed a very bight red light
that moved very slowly in the sky. It started moving rapidly and then bits of it started to fall away we watched it for quite some time but lost sight of it when it faded away behind the clouds.

Investigator's Notes: The Witness did not provide many details, but given that the clouds were quite low and visibility not good the object was likely not a meteor.  Also the witness said that the object disappeared into the clouds which indicates that it was not falling. With the limited information I cannot identify this sighting.
