Location: Palm Spring/Indio, CA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 3-5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
5-6 bright lights in straight line from afar, stationary, not blinking whitish-yellow, up close it's light from a round silent craft.

Unidentified Flying Object? My husband and I were on our way home from a casino (Fantasy Resort) when my husband called my attention. He asked me what object was he seeing and as I looked in front of us (I was looking outside the window on the passenger seat)

I saw a light about 5 or 6 in line. It was so bright and they seemed to appear to be in one line.

Initially, when my husband said, what is that a UFO? I dismissed it and said no maybe a light post (because it reminded me of the lights in the airport. But as we are approaching the light (it is stationary, bright, whitish-yellow in color) I noticed that it was floating.

I said my God this is not an airplane (the lights are not blinking, it is quiet) I looked for my phone camera to take picture of it, but I forgot to open the window and it flashed back to me, we were driving so fast (65 mph) and my husband does not want to slow down, because the cars behind us were driving fast, too.

I was able to look up when we passed by this straight light. At the back of my mind, I said maybe it is just an airplane, so look at the shape, because the light is so bright and you cannot figure it out right away from afar.

I looked-up and it was round and the lights about 5or 6 are underneath the craft. It happened this afternoon (21February2011) between 6:00 and 6:05 PM (at dusk). It was right after or before COOK street in Palm Springs/Indio at freeway 10, we were heading west to our home (Buena Park).

Things happened so fast and I was not able to take another picture of it, but I was able to see it up close (just underneath the craft) I am sure that some motorists may have noticed this light/craft. You cannot miss the bright light ahead of us.

I just want to share it. I donít know if we have military activity in the area, but I have never seen light that bright and a silent craft that is stationary and I have never seen a round craft before. just wondering what it is.
