Duration:3 minutes
oct. 1967 late night, I was a high school student living in the boring town of Saugus, California, the nearest town was Newhaul, and the only high school, was William S. Hart high. Every one in the canyon had horse property, My three freinds and I had just gone on late ride in the querry, and we were sitting on a hill,avoiding going in for the night to out parents. it was very dark, We lived 12 miles back in a canyon called Sand canyon. There were few lights in the canyon, and we could see every star. Suddenly, 6 lights or "Orbs" of light , extremely bright, megenta, or reddish purple, cant really describe the color, suddenly appeared, over the mountian across from us about 2 miles away I'd guess, and the lights just sat there stationary in a row, 6 lights,for about a minete or less, then they split up into 3, each flying away in 2 directions so fast, that I knew in my soul, that nothing moves that fast in the sky on this earth! 3 lights on one side, 3 lights on the other side of the sky several miles apart dancing, zip zip up and back, then just as fast as the parted they came back together in a row, and 6 lights sat in a row, and turned from the megenta color to white. There was no glow around the lights and there was absolutely no sound. Remeber, we are on the edge of the Los Angeles forest, in 1967, no sound at night, you could always hear a pin drop, and those lights made no sound. At first I thought it was some new airplane coming from the army base just around the mountian from us. The school bus picked up the kids from the base every morning so it made sence for a minete, but when the orbs of light moved so fast I knew there was something strange about them. Then after about 3 or 4 seconds, the lights changed back to megenta and off they went, gone so fast that I hardly saw them go at all, and they were all in a row of megenta lights when they went.

none of us four kids ever talked about it and none of us told our perents, because we knew no one would beleive us, and actually we didnt beleive it! We just thought that there was some explination, and we'd never know because we were just high school kids in a mountian town, full of hicks,who'd care? It's 42 years later and I know what I saw, and now I beleive that the 6 lights were probably atatched to one object, from hearing other peaples experiences. And by the way, that army base didnt test planes. Remember, I was 17 years old, what did I know about army or airforce? But I know what I saw!
