Man Sees Bright Grayish Object Hover in Sky & Then Streak Away

Date of Sighting: November 9, 2008
Time of Sighting: 5:22 AM CST
Date Sighting Reported: November 9, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 3 Seconds
Location of Sighting: Ontario, California (About 20 Miles East of Los Angeles)
Latitude: 30.24 Degrees North
Longitude: 93.27 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Three
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One
Weather: Clear Skies. Visibility 10 Miles. Winds Were From the North at 4 MPH.

Description: I saw a big white circular type object in the sky from where I was standing. It was as big as a basketball. It was seen by me and 2 other friends while standing in a driveway early Saturday morning about 4 AM in South Ontario, California. The object hovered for 3 seconds then shot off like a sideways rocket with the rocket tail being orange and ending with glitter like sparks. I know what a shooting star is and this was not one. (There was no way that it could have been a shooting star.) The three of us know what we saw and we know it was not a shooting star. We also did not hear any sound.

Comments: This is an unusual sighting in that a hovering object is seen and then the object is seen to speed away laterally like a rocket. I really don't have an explanation in what aircraft would display these type of aerial movements. The witness said in a follow-up response that six people witnessed the sighting, but his report above states that three (including himself) witnessed the sighting.
