Bright light over Tehachapi, Ca

January 23, 2011: My son was on his way to work about 4:10 am. He spotted a very bright light at least 10 times larger than a star.

He called me and woke me up and said that he thinks he is seeing a UFO and said that I needed to get up and look. I looked out my window and there was no doubt that something was hovering in the sky.

I believe that this light could have been seen from Mojave, Edwards Air force base and surrounding areas. My son lost visual of the light when he was driving in the mountains, but he had it in his sigh for about 30 minutes. I looked at for about 5 minutes and decided to go back to bed. I don’t own a camera so I did not take a picture.

One other thing my cell phone light was going quite bright then dim while I was talking to my son, it has never done that. I have not seen the pictures my son took at this time. I am wondering if anyone had seen this light.
