|Flashing lights over Clovis dancing in the sky
I was watching t.v. in my living room and kept hearing a deep thunder like sound. I went into my 14 year old daughters room and asked if she was making that noise. She said no she was hearing it to. The weather report said possible thunderstorms that night but unlikely, so I said well it must be thunder.
I was about to go out for a smoke anyways so I asked if she wanted to see if there was any lightening over the foothills. As we approached the door she said mom I see stars and clear sky not clouds. So I thought maybe its a motorcycle or something, but unlikely way out in the country like we are. We barely stepped out when we saw them. There first was 3 flashing white lights that were dancing in the sky moving all over the place. Then suddenly there were 6 of them as if they multiplied in front of our eyes. They were dancing like fire flies in the sky.
Then they just stopped dancing and formed a pyramid formation. These things seemed to move so fast and compared to our tree line they appeared to be pretty high. Then a 7th flashing light shot across the formation like a shooting star arcing in the sky. It came to the end of the formation and it abruptly turned to fall in line at the end. They headed east toward the Sierra Mountains zig zagging every now and again. In a matter of less than 2 minutes they were gone.
We still don't know what caused the sounds we heard but were amazed at what we saw. From our house we can see all the way to the foothills and mountains without obstruction and are surrounded by fields. It was around 12:34 am or so in Clovis Ca.
