Sighting Reports 2009

2 Witness Diagonal Glowing Orange Streak Moving SE in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: December 20, 2009
Time of Sighting: 7:24 PM PST
Location of Sighting: Los Angeles, California

Description: My friend and I were on the roof of his apartment building which is about 11 floors tall. I noticed something in the sky that at first looked like the tail of a meteor, but after a few seconds of remaining in the same position I started to really look at it and mentioned it to my friend. When I first saw it, it was a diagonal orange glowing streak. Then it started to drift Southeast and appeared to be bending and opening back up like a writhing worm, but moving more like a jellyfish would in a worm shape. (I have no other way of describing it.) It definitely was not moving mechanically very smooth. It drifted in front of the city hall rotating spotlight and as the light brushed past it, it made the object glow even brighter. I was not just lit from the spotlight. The object actually glowed brighter. A split second later the object started to morph into a ball and got smaller and smaller as if it were moving very quickly away from us until we could no longer see it. Now, the fact that the light actually brushed over it means that this object was considerably close not only to us, but to the ground. A helicopter actually had flown in the same vicinity while we were watching this which also tells us that the object was probably about the size of the helicopter considering how close it was. I have not heard of any sightings similar to this and I know this sounds strange, but neither my friend or I can explain it.

Note: The witness has provided a detailed description of what she saw. She recalls details several days after the sighting occurred. (The sighting was reported January 14, 2010.)
