Posted: 8/10/1999
Location: Trona (near, SR-395), CA
Shape: Other
Duration: 1'30"
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
lights appeared to be resting on desert floor,as viewed from highway.

I was driving on SR 395 southbound, headed for Rancho Cucamonga, Ca, passing near the Trona turnoff, when I noticed a formation of red lights in a semi-lozenge pattern, with the outer lights flashing in a regular manner resting on the desert floor. What struck me as unusual was that there was no headlights or stoplights that a gravel combination would have had, and the pattern of lights shifted relative to my position. Owing to the fact that I had neither binoculars nor time, I did not stop my combination to more closely observe the phenmenon. On the return trip, the conditions were similar, but there were no lights, so any idea of a mining installation was out of the question.
