Duration:30 minutes
On Nov. 02, 2005 at 5:30 pm, my family and I witnessed a strange display of lights over the city....

I was driving east to pick up my son from kids club when I noticed what I thought looked like lights from an airplane or chopper flying towards me when all of a sudden the lights in the sky swooped down very quickly then went up again then side to side spiralled in all directions. The lights were so vivid and close but I could not see the shape of the object only say the lights associated with it.

I pulled the car over to get a better look, me and my four year old daughter were in ahh just looking at the lights as they danced in the sky. I was trying to make sense of the what we were looking at thinking maybe it was a kite with lights on it, but it was moving to fast and covered so much distance and there was no fluttering noises like kites make.

Then I thought maybe it was a remote control airplane, but there were no engine sounds.

When the object would descend and climb it would strobe 4-6 lights in front of it and when it would spiral it would only have 2 red lights at the tips of the craft.

My daughter and I watched the lights/object in the sky for about five minutes till it disappeared. Then I picked up my son a few minutes later at kids club and started telling him what we saw and where in the sky.

Then my son spotted the lights in the sky and so we watched the lights in the sky while in the car driving east on Chapman Avenue we stopped at the red waiting to make a left (north) on Knott avenue, that's when we noticed the second craft in the sky with the same exact characteristics as the first one and we watched the two(2) objects flying in the sky flashing their lights and spiralling in all directions.

That's when the signal light turned green and I raced down the street to pick up my wife from work and I got to her worked I parked in front and honked like a mad man telling her to hurry and get in the car so I can show her the lights in the sky so I raced around the office buildings to the back where there was a clear view of the sky but when we parked we only saw one of the objects about 3-5 miles south east but she was able to see the objects lights and its extraordinary maneuvering capabilities.

We watched the objects for approximately 2-3 minutes till we lost sight of it.

The whole sequence lasted about 30 minutes from 5:30 pm till 6 pm.

Please note, it was already dark outside since we had turned the clocks back on Sun. 10/30/05.
