Description: Shortly after my neighborhood finished with New Years fireworks I went out front of my house and looked toward the west, south west where Orion was and Mars (north of Orion). Where then I and several other witnesses saw a low moving object which was glowing a bright orange. It was traveling due west at a low altitude. There were no blinking lights only a orange glow which seemed to surround the object which was moving at a slow speed compared to most planes I see from the airport which is in Concord CA. This was absolutely not an airplane or helicopter as I see them every day and night due to airport activity! My guess is that this object or craft was observing the activity of fireworks going off all around my city and the surrounding areas!! If you receive any information on this sighting I would like to be informed.

Comments: This sighting was received thanks to Steve Reichmuth (assistant director for the Mutual UFO Network for Northern California). See website: This sighting bears some resemblance to a craft sighted by an 11 year old girl in Naches, Washington on January 11, 2008. Click here to read about this sighting. The witness is correct that this object was likely not an airplane or helicopter. This sighting occurred within an hour of when several groups of witnesses in the San Francisco Bay area and San Diego area saw strange lights. Click here to read a special report about this sighting.
