Red and silver ball seen over mountain town of Alpine, CA.

I was in the back yard and I looked up. My fiance was down a hill about 20 yards away. He was watering with a hose, and dogs were barking so he could not hear me. I said several times, "Look at the strange plane. It has no wings", but he could not understand me, and kept on with his work. I kept staring at the object.

The object was a ball not quite the size of a basketball but larger than a soft- ball. It was red and silver and looked like a crumpled sheet of tinfoil with red places in what appeared to be the indentations.

It was moving east about the speed of a slow-moving plane. (I later saw a plane in that area, and it flew quite a bit faster). I don't think I looked away, but suddenly there was a smaller dark ball on each side of the object. This configuration lasted about 30-40 seconds, and suddenly they all were gone. No noise. No speeding away ... they just disappeared.

I immediately wrote down the time and date in case I would hear someone else talking about the same event. I have talked to no one who saw this.
