Reported: 12/16/2012 9:17:32 PM 21:17
Posted: 12/20/2012
Location: Taft, CA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 minutes
AIR TEMP. 55
WIND CALM
ALT. APROX 3,000 FT
MOVING SWIFTLY IN A N.W. DIR. COLOR 'BRILLIANT' ORANGE
SPEED UNKNOWN. NO SOUND.

2 OBJECTS TRAILING APROX 10 MILES BEHIND A LEADING OBJECT. THE 2 TRAILING OBJECTS MERGED TOGETHER, THEN SEPERATED.

ALL 3 OBJECTS DISAPPEARED AT SAME TIME.

SIZE OF OBJECTS COULD NOT BE DETERMINED, BUT APPEARED TO BE MUCH LARGER THAN A PASSENGER PLANE WOULD AT SAME ALT. THESE DETERMINATIONS ARE BASED ON OUR EXPERIENCE AS PILOTS AND YACHTSMEN.

WE ARE BOTH SENIORS WITH 40 YEARS FLIGHT AND SAILING EXPERIENCE.


((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the husband, and he seemed to us to be exceptionally eloquent and sober-minded. Both husband and wife had unusually responsible jobs in the defense community, working on special projects. PD))
