Location: Summer Lake, OR
|In the eastern sky, from highway 31, just above cloud level. Flashes of reddish orange light, similar to a flare, were seen in different parts of the sky at 10 to 8 minute intervals, over road less areas of the high desert. This was seen the previous night in much the same way. This night a very large aircraft was seen circling the whole valley (25 mile diameter), also above cloud cover which was about 25 % of the sky. This aircraft passed directly over us twice. Several times bright pulsing red lights separated from this aircraft, dropping down and flying away at very high rate of speed, some to the south and to the east. The bright flares continued brighter than Venus, lighting clouds nearby.
We have seen these same events over a year ago with more witnesses and closer observation. The flares actually lit up the Mountain Diablo appearing above and below the clouds. During day light hours a black military type helicopter was seen flying a grid patternover Mt Diablo. There are no roads or homes in the area of the flares.
