ok.. me a a freind of mine when we got off of work at NAS LEMOORE NAVAL BASE, we headed down to the river not to far from base.It was a very clear night and i recall seeing a few shooting stars. We settled down fishing off one of the damns that were there and we seen what we thought was a flare being shot off. It just topped over the tree line and it stopped .. we thought nothing of it. Well it started moving towards us slow,and upwards and the same time. This really really intense light started moving faster making these very sharp turns... we watched it do this for about 5 minutes as it was moving upwards. There was this flash,and right after that we seen like a tail as if it was moving like a comet would but only going up. Shortly after the flash,this red ball of light vanished... FAST and at another really sharp angle. Adding to this.. i work on this base.. i know every aircraft that is here, I know alot about many of the planes that fly around here. I know for a fact that it isn't one ofthem around here that can fly that fast a make sharp turns as this did. Also i know what position light and taxi lights look like on many of the aircraft and none have this big ass red light.
