Sighting Reports 2009

Bright Orange-Red Light Moves Slowly & Then Hovers in Sky

Date of Sighting: December 31, 2009
Time of Sighting: 9:45 PM PST
Location of Sighting: Upland, California (About 35 MI E of Los Angeles)

Description: I was with a few friends when I noticed a bright orange-red light in the sky. At first I thought is was a plane, but it seemed to slow down and then was stationary. The lights were wrong for a helicopter. I brought it to everyone's attention. We were all trying to figure it out. We watched it for about 5 minutes. The orange-red light looked to be in a triangular shape in the West sky. It stopped completely. Then we saw what I can only explain that looked like a bright star come off the bottom. After that it just vanished.

Note: Similar sightings were reported at midnight in the San Diego-El Cajon area (about 100 miles to the south). These sightings have been determined to be a hoax. It is not known if the above sighting could be attributed to this hoaxer. This is somewhat doubtful due to the distance and sighting time difference.
