Small white lights over BAKERSFIELD, CA

I was looking up at the sky at around 10:30 last night, because we’ve been having a meteor shower and I hadn’t had the time to see one yet, as we live in a pretty bright area. As I was looking up (facing south) I noticed there were four stars in a trapezoid shape. I thought it was strange because I’d never noticed that star constellation before, when all of a sudden the two “stars” on the right side of the trapezoid started to move upwards and westward, together. I called my fiancé out to look.

They had a very fluid movement to them, they moved together but sort of drifted a little more together and a little more apart at times. They moved fairly quickly for what tiny lights we could see. They looked just like dim stars but the lights pulsated instead of twinkled the way stars do.

The lights ended up stopping to the west aligned with a bright star. A few seconds after the lights stopped, the biggest meteor I have ever seen streaked across the sky, and right as it happened, the craft or crafts adjusted themselves to face where the meteor had just been.

We continued to stare at the lights for about 10 minutes, but they just hung there, very still in the sky. We decided to go inside. A half an hour went by and my curiosity got the best of me, and I looked out to see the “stars” were still there, just frozen still. Tonight the stars are no longer there, which is why we firmly believe we witnessed a UFO last night.
