Location: Lancaster, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:40-45 min
I took my pup out around 9pm and was sitting in the entryway waiting for her when I saw a shadow pass by. Being afraid owls would take the pup and my chihuahua, who was also out, I walked out onto the lawn to see how many owls there were and to keep and eye on the dogs.

What I saw instead was a wedge shaped object circling in about a mile and half radius. It was first colored a bright blue/green. I got the impression of metallic coloring, then after about 20 minutes had a rainbow like color rippling through it.

I observed it going in a clockwise manor then abrubtly change direction and go counter-clockwise. It would then go in a rectangular pattern or south to north in the blink of an eye. It would stop and just hover, or it seemed would hide behind trees from my view. I know this sounds nuts, but it was real.

The entire time I was watching this thing my chihuahua was barking like crazy at it and my adult lab was just watching it.

I was very intriqued by this craft or object since I do see numerous craft from AF Plant 42 which is 2 miles away.

This object made no sound did cast a shadow though....

I became concerned when it appeared to get lower with each lap in it's circle.....

After 40-45 minutes I went into the house and do not know how much longer it was out there......

I did see at one point when it appeared to be coming straight at me that it appeared to me like 2 wedges with a space between them with lights through the whole point and back both sides.

I don't know exacly how high it was, but would estimate about the height of small aircraft, not 30,000 like commercial planes.
