Location: Los Alamos, CA
Shape: Cigar
Duration:1 minute
I witnessed a cigar-shaped object being pursued by two F-16's in the skies over Los Alamos, CA.

I was outside when I heard the roar of jet engines. Living near Vandenberg AFB, this was not abnormal, but the loudness was. I looked up and saw what appeared to be two low and fast flying f-16's in pursuit of a small cigar-shaped object that was ahead of them by about 500 feet.

I watched as they continued to chase the object until they went over the mountains heading in the direction of Santa Ynez and out of sight.
