Some California residents thought that they saw a little more than fireworks in the sky New Year’s Eve. Residents from Sacramento to Auburn claimed to see strange lights in the sky unlike anything they’ve ever seen. Many residents think that the lights might have been extraterrestrial activity.
The unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, were most often reported as a group of six very bright lights. After sitting in one place for around a minute, the lights separated and flew off, often at a high speed. The lights were reported by several different residents rather than just one, and were visible from a variety of different locations within California.
The lights were bright enough that they could be seen through trees in the area, catching the attention of quite a few of the area’s residents.
“We saw it right through the trees. It was bright enough to shine directly through the trees without any problem seeing it,” said Steven Brown of Sacramento. “Whatever it was moved up and to the left. It hovered there for probably about 60 seconds, and then it took off at a high rate of speed.”
The UFO reports come just a short time after a crop circle was discovered in Salinas, California, a phenomenon that many also attributed to extraterrestrial activity. Both UFO’s and crop circles are often associated with alien activity.
The FAA says that no UFOs were detected in the California area on New Year’s Eve, and that no other unusual flight activity was reported in the area.
