UFO Report:

February 27, 2008, 6:00 pm at Lee Vinnings, CA

This is the second UFO sighting I have had in my 61 years. The first was when I was 15 in New Jersey, and I will report that another time.

However, this more recent on was last year in 2008, occurring in Lee Vinning, CA, on Feb. 27th, around 6:00pm as my wife and I were driving north on Hwy. 395. I have to estimate the time because it was just starting to get a bit dark, and we were probably a bit north of Lee Vinning as well, but this is the general time and place. I remember the date exactly because we were driving from Georgia to my son’s wedding on the 29th of Feb. in Fremont, CA. two days later. Also, the reason I wanted to report it now is because I saw the exacted same thing a few nights ago on the History Channel’s program UFO Hunters. They had a sighting around 3am around Needles, CA of a blue-green glowing rectangular craft streaking across the sky and coming down, which was later picked up by 4 military helicopters and taken away still glowing. This occurred only three months later in May of 2008.

As I was saying, my wife and I both saw this blue-green glowing rectangle streak across our field of view in front of us from West to East, or left to right, since we were heading north. It took about 2 seconds, maybe only one actually to cross our field of view and it was gone. I was amazed to have seen such a thing and do not believe it was a meteor because of the unusual color and rectangular shape. Also, it appeared to be arching upward rather than down. I guess we assumed it was a secret Air Force vehicle, being that Edwards and Area 51 were not that far from us. But after the UFO Hunters story, I feel as though I would like to add my sighting to your files.

As an artist, I did a quick drawing of our sighting in Photoshop and my wife just now confirmed that this is what she also saw that night last year. I will attempt to attach the drawing to this report.
