Location: Grapevine, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
I didn’t write the date down, but the incident occurred about 1999-2000, I was driving late at night (between 11-1am) just leaving the “Grapevine” headed north on a business trip on the 5 freeway in California. All of a sudden, unmistakenly and very vividly, at about a 10 o’clock angle, I noticed two very bright white lights take off from the ground, one right after the other. The time frame from the moment they left the ground to where they disappeared going straight up at the top of the sky was about 2 or 3 seconds.

The way I recalled the description was like this: there was a light within a light. The outside white light was fairly round, but was spread out/diffused around its perimeter, making it translucent. The light in the center was more solid, more opaque, as if that was the craft and the light around it was maybe its power source, or a result of its power being emanated from the craft.

Later, I realized that that location where it emanated from was probably Vandenberg Air Force Base. My instinct at the time told me that perhaps our military was working with the aliens and allowing them to use their base to land and take off when they wished.

However, as time passed closer to the present, having learned how much technology that we’ve reversed engineered from the aliens, or, even technology I’ve read about from Tesla and a fascinating interview with Ralph Ring, who worked with Otis Carr, protégé of Tesla, I’m more inclined to think that what I saw was our own “UFO” technology at work.

Has anyone else reported on this siting back then or any other time? Thank you.
