|A rotating TR-B3 Spotted in California.
I am 15, living in california (14, yesterday.) I had gone to see my grandparents in San Diego. I am unsure of the date, but it was either the day or the day after my birthday. (August 9th, possibly 10th) I was looking outside the window as we were driving down the highway. In the car was my mother, I and 3 girls that were friends and worked for my mother since we own a farm. The time was anywhere between 9PM and 12AM. I noticed a few white dots moving in the sky, but my eyes quickly adjusted. It was fairly large, possibly 120 yards in diameter and black, triangle shaped. It had three lights on the bottom. I forget if there was one in the middle. I assume it was a variation of the TR-B3 after researching it.
It spun horizontally while gliding in all directions. I believe it spun from right to left. It would glide low along the fields about 200 yards to our right and than rise and fly over the highway. It was a busy night and there was traffic on this highway out in the middle of nowhere. As it flew overhead I could make out the shadow of it blocking out the stars as it was a clear night. It repeated the same manuevers and the traffic began to clear up after about 20 minutes. At that time it sped off in the direction we were going, west along the highway. We were pointing towards beale airforce base.
We were on the way home from Six Flags Magic Mountain, so I estimate the sighting between there and Sacramento.
I have been fascinated with UFOs since I was 8, the fleeting wish when I blew out my candles was always to spot a UFO.
((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. We have heard claims about the "TR-3B," for a decade or more, but we have yet to see what we consider to be solid evidence, or a photo. PD))
