Date of Sighting: May 11, 2010 (Date That Story Was Posted by NBC)
Time of Sighting: Morning (Exact Time Unknown)
Location of Sighting: Oakland, California (Near Bay Bridge)

Description: We received a link to the NBC Today Show video from a viewer. The video was captured, clipped, and slowed to around 3 frames/second.

Note: With the comments received on May 20, 2010 it is quite likely that the object in the video was an airplane. The commentor saw the airing on a HD TV. The above video was extracted in a much lower resolution from a web site.

Comments Received May 18, 2010:

NBC video at Angel Island and it was the Oakland Bay Bridge not the Golden Gate Bridge. It is getting pretty interesting when live UFO's are caught on TV. I don't think that was a sea gull at that speed. Great post!


That is a great catch, but it was overcast and raining on the 17th of May 2010.

UFOS Northwest Response to Above Comments: UFOS Northwest thanks the above commentors. As the result of the comments the date and exact location of the video were changed. The date is still not confirmed, but the story was posted on NBC on May 11, 2010. The interview could have been conducted prior to May 11.

Comments Received May 20, 2010: Hi Bill. I watched this newscast the day it aired. Mr. Holt was standing in San Francisco on The Embarcadero near the Bay Bridge. If you go to Google Maps and search for "188 The Embarcadero, San Francisco" you will see approximately where Lester Holt was standing. He was in San Francisco after having been the commencement speaker for the graduation ceremony at UC Merced. I have a high definition TV and could clearly see that it was an airplane passing behind Lester Holt.
