I am an avid skywatcher as a photographer, and am always looking at the light, the stars, and have my head generally pointed upwards. In the Sierras, China Lake Navel Weapons Base is not far from here, and they run daily operations over the mountains. I have seen fighter jets, and stealth aircraft during the day and night hours, so I’m pretty used to identifying airplanes and military craft.
I’m writing this 2 hours after an incredible sighting I just had from the viewpoint of Wofford Heights, California where in the twilight sky, I saw what at first I thought might have been a big plane with it’s landing gear lights on in the distance. Upon retrieval of some binoculars I was absolutely surprised to see a giant triangular UFO. At first I believe the formation of 4 lights was a diamond pattern, but realized it must be coming towards my viewpoint (which is was, east to west). The lights were a large solid amber triangle on a huge black form, followed by a larger blinking white light that at first I thought must be attached to the craft. As it turned South flying over the mountains east of Kernville, it was clearly visible that this larger blinking white light followed extremely close to the triangular craft, but was most definitely a separate craft. Originally I had thought is was just one aircraft.
As a photojournalist, this is a moment I really wish I had my giant SLR and a 800mm lens. Unfortunately I had an iPhone 5s, and a pair of binoculars. By the time I was able to train the binoculars on the moving crafts, and the iPhone in the viewfinder, it had made a considerable distance but at least I was able to capture the light pattern overall. My initial sighting gave a very clear view of the craft, which was very typical of Triangular UFO’s seen around the world. The unique aspect to this sighting, was the larger white light that blinked following just off the tail of the craft itself. Thankfully, it was still bright enough to see the shape of the triangle, which based on the size of fighter jets and passenger planes I see fly overhead, was considerably larger (please see size diagram at the bottom of this post).
Whether it’s military or extraterrestrial, it’s something I’ve never seen before and was quite the incredible experience! This thing was big! 🙂
** Note to my sketch above: the iPhone below was taken at 5:21 and 50 seconds pm. Which means in my initial sketch, I’m off by about a minute at 5:23pm. The photo was taken when it was already some distance away unfortunately, but you can clearly see some light pink clouds in the twilight sky and the amber coloring of the lights themselves.
