Location of Sighting: Santa Rosa, California
Date of Sighting: October 16, 2019
Time of Sighting: 10:30 PM EDT
Description: On Wednesday, October 16, 2019, we were driving home around 10:30 from a night out and took a back road to our home just southeast of Santa Rosa, California (a rural but populated area). No other cars were visible when suddenly a strobe of multiple white lights flashing lit the interior of our car for about a second or two. I looked to the sides and in the rear view mirror, but saw nothing. (I saw just the dark of night.) It was strange, but my husband didn’t mention anything so I just kept driving. A few minutes later it happened again. There were no cars, just darkness, and still no mention of it from my husband. It was weird. I thought it must have been some sort of speed monitoring and carried on. A few minutes later it happened a third time and I asked my husband if he saw it. “Yes! It was the third time it happened,” he said. We talked about it while driving the rest of the way home without further incident. I didn’t check for any loss of time. It was a weird and unexplained event, though, each instance occurring a mile or two apart, so it seems reasonable to assume it was not a coordinated prank. I would love to know if anyone else has experienced something similar.
Note: The witness stated that this sighting was similar to a sighting where a couple were terrified by flashes of light while driving. This sighting was near Coulee City, WA on Aug 7, 2015.
