Duration:approx 5 min.
|A cluster of spinning red lights which formed into a diamond shape.
It started off as a cluster of red lights (maybe 5 or 6). The cluster then started to slowly spin on its side. It then spread out in to a diamond shape and hovered in the sky for approximately 30 seconds. After that, it faded in to the darkens. As it was fading we called our friend to come outside. Before she came outside it had disappeared for approximately 1 minute and reappeared in the sky. This time there was a white light, which started off small and grew bigger. There was also a red light next to the white light on the right side. The last 2 lights we saw in the sky were there for approimately 1 minute and disappeared. After that there were no more lights.
((NUFORC Note: NUFORC received multiple reports from the north Los Angeles area about this incident. We are still uncertain as to what caused the event. At least one newspaper reported that it had been caused by sky divers with flares attached to them as they descended. However, one large group of observers at a church function allegedly witnessed the event for a measured 22 minutes, probably longer than sky divers could remain suspended beneath a parachute during a typical jump. We will continue to investigate. PD))
