Reported: 2/9/2008 11:52:01 PM 23:52
Posted: 2/14/2008
Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Changing
Duration:1 minute
Bright lights, three horizontal rows, maybe ten lights across each row, each light was bigger and brighter than any star.

I was walking my dog at around 7:30 in the evening; my dog is old so we do a lot of standing not so much walking. I was looking up at the stars because it was a very clear night and to the east is the Oakland Airport, so there are always lots of planes to see.

All of a sudden to the northeast, I saw bright lights, which seemed to appear from nowhere and made the few plans in the sky look like distant stars. As they got closer, which took only 20 seconds or so, It looked like it could possibly be round, there were three rows of horizontal lights, maybe ten across on each row, each light five times bigger than the brightest star. They were not flashing, but at one point it seemed to turn, so the lights appeared to rotate slightly and the shape of the object changed into a wide V shape,I called out to my husband but by the time he got outside it had disappeared behind a building and I didn’t see it again.In all it lasted about a minute.I was looking east,it apeared from the northeast and it traveled south.

I have never personally seen a UFO, my husband has, and I’ve always laughed at his description and told him it was just a plane, or possibly a star. I have lived here for nine years and the 7:30 dog walk is a nightly routine, and I have never seen anything like this.

My husband just came in and dragged me outside to look at another “UFO”…it was a star.
