Location: Lake California (Cottonwood), CA
Shape: Cone
Duration:Several minutes
Two bright cone shaped cloud like patterns trailing very bright object flying, pausing in erratic pattern overhead on very clear night

10/7/18 - About 7:20 p.m. Clear night sky. Not cloudy. Cottonwood, CA near Redding, CA. Actually sited up over Lake California out of Cottonwood. Saw bright, object flying over sky North to South with downward pattern, then upward, then seeming to be still. Would change directions. It had two cone shaped white spray like things coming out of it in back of its trajectory. Stopped car and watched it for a couple of minutes - then went home close by to get binoculars for closer look. Could not see it from house - either behind trees across street or was gone. Really strange looking and moving in abnormal pattern resembling flight. Very bright white light. Was shocked to see many similar reporting when Googled it.

Found this reporting sight. Seen by elderly couple driving home from Bible Study. One has Master's Degree and the others has some college education. This was very unsettling.
