TELEPHONED REPORT TO NUFORC:

Man and son witness bright light, with second trailing object, pass overhead. The father estimated that the larger object was at an altitude of 30,000 feet, and the smaller object, which trailed behind the larger one, at a higher altitude.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the witnesses observed an overflight of the International Space Station, which was visible from northern California at 19:21 hrs. on this date. Please see the data at the following URL:

We do not know what the trailing body is behind the Space Station, but it may be a Russian "Progress" re-supply vehicle that is docking with the station. A written report from the witnesses is pending. PD))
