Location: Oakley, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 mins
My friend and I were driving south on Main St in Oakley CA it was 8:25 pm and we saw two flying objects in the sky. One was shaped triangular and the other was oval shaped. They were flying slow at first, then sped up fast perfectly in sync with each other. I said to my friend wait what is that and she replied I was just thinking the same thing. Next I said to her look there are fast blinking lights coming from them. The triangular one appeared as if it was rotating. It was apparent they were not air planes or helicopters. I asked her for her phone and started taking pictures. Then told her to follow them.

They were large about 400 feet in diameter aprox 75 ft from the ground. They were headed north west in the same direction as we were. After five minutes They both went off to the east and higher into the sky. Then they just stopped and hovered there. We pulled over on to the side of the road and took pictures and video. The lights were extremely bright, and white. They stayed there for ten minutes.

I went running off the side of the road to get a closer look and then they started coming closer to us. So I stopped and then the two objects separated into six flying objects. The one shaped as a triangle became three little objects flying. So did the oval shaped object. They were much smaller (maybe 55 ft dia) now and traveling faster. Because they were rotating fast in a triangle shape they appeared as if it was one large object which is not the case. The same goes for the oval object. Then they started moving further away we got back into the car to try and follow them in the opposite direction.

Before they disappeared they were now headed north east. We turned our car around and proceeded that direction looking for them. We have video of our lights and electronics turnig on and off. They were nowhere in site anymore. I looked over and saw a police car just sitting on the side of the road. This was now on E. Cypress and Seller st. I told my friend we have to tell the cop and report this. She said no he will think we are crazy. I said to her he’s facing the direction of the objects maybe he seen them to. She pulled up next to him and I said hello “ Im not crazy or on drugs but did you just see... and he interrupted before I could say another word and he said “ The flying objects in the sky, Yes I did”. He then told us he called Travis air force base to see if they had anything in the air and they told him no. He gave us his card with all his information he was actually the sergeant and then said “ Well if I disappear and am not hear tomorrow make sure you report t! his”. As we were driving off another car pulled over and we overheard them starting to tell him what they saw in the sky.
