Location: Novato, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:3+ minutes
we were traveling east on hwy. 37 and saw moving slowly above us from the north/west, what looked like three giant bars of light, similar to very high beam headlights shining through fog (there was no fog), at one point there was another object that looked like it was shot out of the light structure, very much like a missile, this was shot in an eastward direction. We agreed that it looked much like a shooting star.

Wednesday, September 1, 1999 at approximately 9:30 p.m., my husband and I were traveling eastbound on hwy. 37 in Marin County, Ca. The location was approximately 1.5 miles from the Black Point/Atherton exit. We saw in the sky directly above our car what looked like three long, thick, fingers of light traveling at a very slow speed, they looked very much like super high beam headlights shining through a thick fog, (there was no fog that night). We continued to watch this light show while we looked for a place to pull over on the highway. As the lights crossed directly over hwy. 37, we saw what looked like a small missile, or shooting star, shot off the side into an easternly direction. The lights looked as if they had come from a north/west direction, and they were crossing over hwy. 37 in a south/east direction. At the time of observation, my mouth filled with the taste of having bit down on aluminum foil on a tooth filling. I had the sensation of metal emitting from an upper back crown in my mouth. This taste stayed with me for approx. 10 minutes after the viewing. The next morning I woke up with the insides of my lips feeling sunburned. When we arrived home (which is 1 mile north off of hwy. 37) our 12 year old daughter told us that she had been sound asleep and was woken by the popping sounds of the vertebra in her neck, her mouth was filled with a "bad taste, like a burning taste". At this point she looked up through her bed side window and saw bars of bright light going over our house. She remembers that her bed side clock read 9:30. The three of us felt exhausted the next day. We all sensed that what we saw was some kind of pre-empt of something much larger to come. When my husband and I pulled off the freeway to view the lights more clearly, they continued to move slowly for a few seconds, and then completely disappeared, one second they were there in front of us, the next, they were gone. We sat there for several minutes in a very stunned mode. I am a 43 yr. old mother of two small daughters, aged 12 and 8. I am currently working on a project in conjunction with the Institute of Noetic Sciences, called the Future Generations Initiative. This Initiative is working toward bringing together like minded efforts that are working to raise the consciousness of our youth so that they may be more prepared to face the challenges that we leave them. I am working closely with the Institute, as well as with members of the State of the World Forum. My husband, age 46, is the co-owner of the largest privately owned home improvement corporation in the nation. Our daughter, age 12, is a student of Waldorf Education, a bright and loving girl, musically inclined.
