My friend and I were driving home when we saw an orange light in the sky. When we stopped the truck to look at it we saw that it was moving at the pace of a normal airplane. As we watched we saw a light come off of it, if the object was a millimeter in size the light that came off of it was about 4 to 5 millimeters. In the light that came off, there was a series of blinking lights inside the light. The light with the blinking lights in it lasted about 10 seconds both times it happened. The object made a strange sound. It kind of sounded like an electric engine. I know that it was the object making the sound because there were no other airplanes around. We wathched the light start to slow down almost to a stop then it disappered.

My friend and I were driving home around 1:30am when I saw a bright orange light in the the sky. From my town we can see airplanes that are approaching Burbank Airport, so we see a lot of airplane activity. The object caught my eye because it did'nt look like any of the airplanes I've seen fly by. It did'nt have any of the blinking safty lights that the other planes have. I pulled my truck over to get a better look. When I got out I noticed the object flew about the same speed as the airplanes we see. As we watched the object a beam of light came off of it. Within the light, there were a row of blinking lights that we could not see before. If the object was a millimeter in size the light that came off was about 4-5 millimeters in length. This happened twice. Each time it lasted about 10 seconds. We jumped back into my truck to move becuase we were parked under a street light we wanted to go to a darker place to get a better look. We drove to my friends house which was about 100 yards away from the spot where we first saw it. When we got out of the truck we noticed the object made a strange electrical type sound. I know it was the object making the sound beacuse there were no other aircraft around. As we watched the object we noticed it started to slow down to a very slow speed. Right when it seemed like the object was going to come to a stop it disappered. I called the local police and the airport to see if any one else reported it. Each said no.
