Sighting Reports 2009

Bright Red Pulsating Red Object Changes Direction Night Sky

Date of Sighting: October 17, 2009
Time of Sighting: 2:30 AM PDT
Location of Sighting: Lake Forest, California (S. California About 30 MI SE of Los Angeles)

Description: I saw a red object at an unknown distance appeared similar to large planet such as Jupiter on a clear night, but the object was "very red" and was northeast of Lake Forest, California moving in a westerly direction. The color seemed to pulsate brighter to less bright. It stopped moving west and turned bright white then back to red, and a spattering of red debris began falling toward the ground below it. It seemed to move away toward the northeast and faded from view. No other lights were observed as on typical planes or helicopters.

Additional Information Provided by Witness: Since LA and other heavily populated areas are northeast of Lake Forest and since we have heard no other reports it must have been something ordinary to those who were closer to its location. We just thought it was odd.

Note: This report almost sounds like a plane in trouble given the change in direction and falling debris. However, not enough information is available to classify this sighting. No rocket launches were noted in the area. A rocket was launched the following day from Vandenberg Air Force Base.
