I know "ancient history" is frowned upon,but here goes.I've been around aircraft(experimental or otherwise) all my life,and nothing compares to what four others and myself whitnessed that night.We were taking our last break of the night(swing shift)We were located out the backside of the plant smoking cigarettes,when out of the north,on the west side of interstate 205 came a noiseless "tumbling baton" with yellow and red lights on opposing ends was on a southerly heading,I looked up and said"what the hell is that"the others I was with turned on heel and looked in the direction I was pointing,staring in amazment...the "object" stopped tumbling and made some lateral "zig-zag" movements and stopped,hung stationary for a second,then with amazing speed darted off in a south westerly heading and out of sight within two seconds...all the while without so much as a roar,sonic boom,or noise of any kind.We all just stood there in dis-belief,and some joking comments came from a couple of the other guys like"wow,a flash back"or"I did'nt just see that did I?"I've never really told anyone else about this incident until now…
