Sighting Reports 2008

Woman Sees Bright Large Light Moving Rapidly in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: September 6, 2008
Time of Sighting: 11:30 PM PDT
Date Sighting Reported: September 7, 2008
Duration of Sighting: Few Seconds
Location of Sighting: Covina, California (Suburb About 20 MI ENE of Downtown LA)
Latitude: 34.08 Degrees North
Longitude: 117.86 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Skies Were Clear. Visibility Was 9 Miles. Winds Were Calm.

Description: An extraordinarily bright light in the night sky caught my attention. I thought it was a shooting star at first, and it was my reaction to that light that made me look. However, the object was too large to be a shooting star. There was absolutely no noise, like that of an engine. It was stealth. I couldn't really catch the shape of the object because it was moving at an incredible speed. There was a passenger jet in the air, but it dwarfed in size and the speed of the jet was much slower. I watched for just a few seconds and then it was out of my sight.

Additional Information Supplied by Witness: The object was much larger than a passenger jet. In fact, there was a jet in the sky at the time. It was much larger and probably traveled 5 to 10 times faster than the jet. It looked like a comet. It was about 1/3 to 1/2 the size of a full moon. I was on the internet all day and called KCAL news and Channel 4 news, along with JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory), to see if anyone else had reported anything, but apparently no one saw anything.

Comments: In a subsequent communication the witness did not think that the object was a comet. Given what is known about this sighting, I have no explanation.
