Salinas is About 70 Miles Southeast of San Francisco.

Date of Sighting: December 20, 2009 (Similar Sighting Occurred on November 26, 2009)
Time of Sighting: 7 PM PST
Location of Sighting: Salinas, California

Description: The first sighting was on 11-26-09 on Highway 68, south of Salinas, California. I was traveling eastbound on highway 68 at about 9 to 9:30 PM and I saw a bright, almost neon blue, elongated light about 800 feet up. It was moving really slow and what caught my eye was that it didn't have any collision lights on. I rolled my window down and heard nothing but vehicle noise. As I got closer, I could see three distinct illuminated sections. The object appeared to be hovering, but would move slowly at times. I checked the inside of my car to see if anything inside was reflecting off the window. I found nothing in my car that would give that reflection. When I passed the object to the point it was visible in my side mirror, I looked away for a couple of seconds, looked back and the object was gone. I went into work the next day at a 911 dispatch center and checked to see if anyone reported the incident. One person had called in, reporting the EXACT same thing I saw. At the time of this incident, the sky was clear with no clouds.

On 12-20-09 I was taking out the trash when my neighbor said he could see a bright blue light in the sky that was making quick sudden movements at "ridiculous speeds." I questioned him about it and he pointed to an area of the sky south of my residence. This was in the area of Pine Canyon Road and River Road, southeast of Salinas, California. I immediately saw the same blue light I saw on 11-26-09. The object was moving quickly across the sky, but would stop suddenly and then reverse direction. It did this several times. The object also seemed to hover at some point, descending in altitude, but would quickly gain altitude in an almost vertical angle. Again, there were no collision lights and there was no sound coming from this object. This went on for several minutes until it disappeared from view. (We couldn't see which way it went.) I have had planes and helicopters fly over my residence during daylight and nighttime hours. In my 11 years as a police officer, and 2 years as a dispatcher, I have NEVER seen anything like this. I am also somewhat of a modern U.S. military aircraft buff. Nothing I have ever seen moved like this object did. As a side-note, I managed to get about a minute video recording of the object on my camcorder. This last event was witnessed by my neighbor and his daughter (both of whom I never met before tonight), and my wife. I know this sounds crazy, but I am pretty familiar with what's in the air around Salinas and this was nothing I can explain.

Note: This is an incredible sighting by a credible witness. The December 20 sighting had some corroborative witnesses (neighbors and 911 caller).
