Date of Sighting: July 21, 2011
Time of Sighting: 10:33 PM to 10:43 PM PDT
Location of Sighting: Yucca Valley, California (See Map)

Description: Unusual circular lights hovered over the city of Yucca Valley, California for 10 minutes on July 21, 2011 from 10:33 PM until 10:43 PM. In a dark desert sky, the glowing orbs remained at approximately the same altitude the entire time they were visible. It appeared as though they were slightly moving to align with each other.

These unidentified reddish-orange orbs conjured up images of the 1997 "Phoenix Lights" sighting, featured by the History Channel, although they appeared in a different configuration.

The glowing lights with a reddish outline appeared oval in shape at one point, just before they finally lined up. The remaining circle brightly glowed in the sky and then disappeared into the darkness of the night.

The writer of this article personally observed and photographed this sighting. The writer is not a UFO enthusiast and attempted to decipher a scientific explanation for what she witnessed. The author’s calls to local authorities and military officials were not returned.

Note: The above is an edited photo. The original photo has been requested. Updates will be posted.

Comments Received April 13, 2012: The Marines base has "War Games." They use orange flares on parachutes to light the sky.
