Location: Bakersfield, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:16 minutes
Saw an unidentifiable flying object in the sky shooting beams of light during an earthquake.

At about 4:16 p.m., I was facing south west, when I saw yet another ball of light moving around the sky. It stopped, shot out a ray of light, and then darted around the sky in impossible fashion for about 15 minutes before it went away. During the time of the sighting which would between 4:16 p.m. and 4:32 p.m., a 4.9 magnitude earthquake hit 3 miles outside of Wasco, California, at 4:22 p.m. which was approximately 20 miles from my location.
