Location: Redding (northeast of, out over Millville, approximately), CA
Shape: Light
Duration:approximately 5 minutes
Summary : Two amber lights moving at the same distance apart beginning at one end of Redding and ending in the north eastern direction above Redding. The lights dropped another WAY brighter light that was white to the ground. Then the most awesome part was that they just disappeared. My husband, self and six year old daughter witnessed this.

While driving East on Lake Blvd. in Redding, my husband pointed out a set of two lights that were not normal in formation nor in appearance for an airplane. They were, from where we stood, approximately a quarter of an inch big each, amber in color, moving slowly north by north east? When we pulled over to the side of the road after the first minute or so we realized they were not airplanes nor were they any other conventional type of air vehicle. These were two lights going next to each other, approximately two inches apart, in unison as if hooked at the middle. We could not differentiate if they were indeed hooked or not, but if hooked together by something this object would have to have been huge. While sitting there freaking out at these lights, seeing them not blinking, or anything else, moving slowly, they headed north. After a period of approximately 3-5 minutes, the further away of the two lights moved upward and dropped a giant white light from its bottom an!d this light was five times the size of each of the orange lights and dropped to the ground completely. It was a huge white light that was so bright that it hurt our eyes. The two other amber lights, still virtually in unison went out at that point and one popped sort of red for a second as they went out then disappeared completely.We are awestricken! It seems that even though we stood near our car atop a big city hill gaping and screaming it's a ufo that nobody else stopped, however, someone had to have seen these...they were too obvious.
