Reported: 1/2/2017 4:54:04 PM 16:54
Posted: 1/6/2017
Location: Galt, CA
Shape: Circle
Duration:8 seconds
I saw between 6 and 8 objects moving in formation across the night sky.

I was observing the night sky on January 1st, 2017, between 2:30 am and 3:00 am, when I saw 6-8 lights about the size of Venus in formation traveling West across the sky.

The formation was about the size of the moon and took approximately 8 seconds from when I seen the objects, to where I couldn't see them anymore.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he seemed to us to be quite serious-minded. We suspect he is a quite reliable witness. PD))
