Location: Tehachapi Pass HWY 58, CA
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:1 minute
HEADED EAST ON HWY 58 JUST APROACHING TEHACHAPI PASS CRYSTLE CLEAR AFTERNOON ABOUT 1/2 MILE FROM WINDFARM ON THE PASS WITH THE SUN TO MY BACK. SOMETHING SHINING UP IN THE BLUE SKY CAUGHT MY EYE. IT WAS HUGE COMMING UP OVER THE MOUNTAIN PASS. IT WAS ALMOST TRANSPARENT, THE REASON I SAW WAS BECAUSE OF THE REFLECTION OF THE SUN. IT WAS AS BIG AS A 50 STORY BUILDING UP IN THE AIR ABOUT 1000 FT. IT LOOKED LIKE A GIANT WINDOW WITH HORIZONTAL BLINDS IN IT. IT WAS ALMOST CLEAR AND STEADY AS A ROCK. A PERFECT RECTANGLE JUST HANGING THERE. THEN IN ONE MOVE THE HORIZONTAL, ILL CALL THEM WINGS ABOUT 30 OF THEM LIKE SHATTERED AND THE 2 VERTICAL SIDES CAME TOGEATHER AND FELL STRIGHT DOWN IN A SPARKLING SHOW BUT NOTHING REACHED THE GROUND. I KNOW THAT BECAUSE I WAS ALMOST UNDER IT AND IT WAS GONE.
