Description: This Sighting Was Forwarded to UFOS Northwest:

Article From Tracy Press Newspaper (

A slowly moving band of deep blue lights seen in the cloudless southern Tracy sky Monday night had a few people wondering Tuesday morning what the heck it was they saw.

Larry Gustafson, 49, said his neighbor Ervin Floyd banged on his door at about 7 p.m. in the Morehead Park trailer court on Chrisman Road near 11th Street and urged him to check out the unusual sight.

He said he ran outside, looked up, spotted the lights in the night sky and then ran back inside to grab binoculars. By the time he was back outside, the lights had disappeared.

Gustafson said the lights hung in the sky about 5 minutes. Sometimes they moved, he said, and at other times, only one light shone.

“It was really strange looking,” the landscape maintenance worker said.

Floyd, 36, said his kids got a little hysterical when they looked out of their bedroom window and spotted the lights.

“It looked like an LED light, like off a cop car,” Floyd said.

The plumber said the lights appeared to hover high in the sky, then “went from west to east, then back to the west and back to the east, then flew out west toward the Bay Area and disappeared.”

“This appeared to be some kind of aircraft,” he said, though it had “no blinking strobes. No red. No white. It wasn’t making any sudden movements.”

The Tracy Press received several calls Tuesday asking what the lights were. Police spokesman Sgt. Tony Sheneman was unaware of any calls to the department about the lights.

Floyd just wants to know what it was.

“It’s got be explained, because I didn’t see any fighter jets chasing it,” he joked.

Note: The photos were taken by different witnesses (two witnesses) that were not quoted in the newspaper article. The first photo in the slide show shows lights in an "aircraft shaped" formation, but the remaining three photos show the lights to not be in any formation. This sighting is quite compelling considering that several independent witnesses apparently observed the lights and that photos were taken.
