Sighting Report
Occurred : 9/17/2000 16:30 (Entered as : 09/18/00 16:30)
Reported: 9/18/2000 09:34
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2.5 hours
Several, individual blinking lights, in afternoon San Francisco sky.

"Lights" appeared to be satellites, but satellites are not usually seen at 4:30 PM, on a sunny day. These objects blinked erratically, and would appear for a few minutes then disappear, then re-apppear at some other portion of the sky. Four of these objects approached each other and formed a diamond shape; three objects formed a straight line, the center object moved forward (forming a wedge) then the remaining two followed suit; two objects moving on parallel tracks (but in opposite directions) stopped when aligned; then moved off in the same direction. An object would approach another,circle then move away in a different direction. Some of these objects appeared to change and/or emit a red and blue colour (when seen through 10x50 binoculars). All objects were viewed directly overhead. 7 witnesses, 5 adults, age range 28 to 48, two minors, aged 14 and 11. Once again we have (admittedly crude) video, a copy of which will be sent to Mr. Davenport.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke briefly with the witness, and he sounded quite credible to us. We have corrected the date here. The incident occurred on Sunday, 17SE00. He was apparently witness to an event at 1600 hrs. on the same date. PD))
