Occurred : 4/14/1999 22:20 (Entered as : 04/14/99 22:20)
Reported: 4/14/1999 23:02
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Pomona/LaVerne, CA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:8 minutes
Bright orange light hovering in southwestern sky, moved northeast, then hovered again and proceeded to release several smaller light spheres which moved slowly and independently, most going downward, at least one going upward. Orange light then pulsated brighter, then dimmed, eventually dimmed out completely. Duration of sighting lasted approx. 8 minutes.

I was out for my nightly walk when I noticed in the southwest sky a bright glowing orange sphere about twice the size of Mars. The light moved in a northeast direction as I ran back home to get my wife to witness this. My wife came outside and we both observed (I through binoculars) as the orange sphere released several smaller spheres of light, dropping them downward. At one point there were at least 3 of these lights dropping at the same time as another light shot up from above the object. We continued to watch as the light pulsated brighter and then dimmed until it dimmed or winked out. This is the identical object that we observed on 3/29 at approximately the same time of night. However, this time the object was not near the airport as it was on the first sighting. We were not watching a planet, as planets do not travel across the sky and then stop and drop spheres of light out of them.
