PETALUMA, Calif. More then a dozen people reported seeing an unidentified



flying object hovering and darting over this suburban city north of San



Francisco early yesterday morning. I looked up and saw seveal orange lights



hovering in the sky, said Sue Heart, who was delivering newspapers at 4:30



a.m. when the UFO was sighted. A California Highway patrolman described the



fast flying object as a large, orange X with white lights on the front. All



witnesses agreed it was not an airplane, and air-traffic and military



spokesmen in the area were unable to explain the object.



The sighting came three days after Brazilian air-force jets reportedly chased



more then a dozen fast-moving objects marked by intense green, red and white



lights.

about one another like two pieces of paper carried aloft. About fifteen



minutes later he saw three unmarked black helicopters fly overhead, but not in



the dirrection in which he had seen the objects. This witness is a Sunday



School teacher.

Just as she went to her window to see what was happening the whole area around



her house and the woods lit up just as if it were daytime. She could see



shadows being cast of whatever it was but not the object itself as it was



directly overhead. She did not go out to investigate. The lighting effect



lasted for about five seconds. There was no sound.

Sightings of strange flying objects have become more frequent in these parts



since late May when a California Highway Patrol officer spotted a peculiar



light in the sky during the wee hours of the morning.





But last weekend, not only did Sonoman Joan Burtson observe an unusual



flying object - this one toyed with her and followed her car for several



blocks before finally giving up and going away.



The head nurse at a local convalescent hospital dismesses the notion that



the bright object in the dawn sky which taunted her for some 15 minutes was a



space ship carting around some alien beings.



"I don't believe in them," she emphatically states. "I don't know what it



was but I don't believe in UFO's. Burtson will acknowledge that in the last



few weeks she has heard numerous rumors of UFO sightings in Sonoma Valley.



For instance, an acquaintance on Eighth Street East reported that ever since



the CHP officer saw the strange light two months ago "that thing has been



hanging around here."



However, Burtson's description and that of the CHP patrolman are vastly



different leading one to believe there are several odd things hovering around



up there.



What was seen on the early morning of May 21 was a bright orange "X" shaped



object heading at a high rate of speed over the Valley to Petaluma.



The only similarity with Saturday's unexplained illuminating object was



that both were apparently headed in the same direction over the hill to



Petaluma.



Burtson remembers it as a "solid mass of white light, it was circular



about the size of an apple.



"There were no colors and it was not flashing." she recalls. Burtson's



curious find took place at 5:15 a.m. as she was on her way home from Napa



after dropping her husband Pat off at work.



She initially noticed the stationary light in the vicinity of Eighth



Street East and Napa Road. Later as she approached Leveroni Road from



Fifth Street West the flying object moved along with her and made the



same right turn.



She subsequently made three U turns and each time the object would



seemingly use its remote control to reverse its course also.



"I thought to myself this is weird so I made three U turns to test it



out," she says.



On occasion, the UFO would become obscured by the trees but almost the



entire way home, no matter what Burtson would do " it would move



right along with me," she laughs.



Finally, the flying object, for whatever reason, decided the game of



cat and mouse was over and it headed towards the Diamond A area,



disappearing over the hill.

Grass Valley - A silent but colorful flying object zoomed across the sky



over the Sierra foothills just before dawn Friday, according to some local



residents who witnessed the brief event.



U.S. air defense officials said they had no explanation. "It was a



bluish-green light with a large tail," said Ron Talmage, a security officer



who was nearing the end of a night shift when he saw the unidentified object.



"It had little pieces flaking off of it like it was coming down," he said.



"Working nights, I see meteorites, little ones, all the time. This was



spectacular and it seemed like it was just a few miles away."



The blaze of color, reported by most observers to have occurred just before



5 a.m., was seen over a 40-mile area ranging from Colfax to Penn Valley.

One witness reported seeing over her street, LaSalle, an object that the nose



of it looked like a boomerang with a pyramid bottom. It was a very windy and



particularly clear night and when she looked to the north she saw a formation



coming towards her and her first impression was that it was a flock of birds



and then as it got closer it looked like a formation of stars. They had a



luminous glow to them and they didn't look like head lamps or anything like



that. As it came closer she noticed there were more lights going across the



bottom of it like a stingray - solid at least underneath and she could not see



through it. As it came towards her the lights shut off in the center and only



the outline was left on. Stayed there for about 5-7 minutes watching. As it



came over her it went further up in the sky and it was weird as no light in



the belly of it but she could see a formation of it and what it looked like



but it kept fading in and out. The lights in the front of the object stayed



on, no noise. The object was much larger than any plane she has ever seen



from wing to wing. A boomerang has very wide angles from one end to the other



as the object did also, and the nose of the object was not sharp.

REDONDO BEACH - Andy Hoyt admits he has no proof - not anymore, at least -



that he witnessed the crash of an aircraft that may be the Pentagon's



most carefully guarded secret.



His sister, Lisa, and her 16-year-old son, Joey, reportedly also saw the



plane, but both declined to discuss the alleged incident. Hoyt, an unemployed



Redondo Beach carpenter, says he snapped photographs of the



plane as it plummeted to the ground in the Sequoia National Forest near



Bakersfield.



But the photographs were given to the Air Force, Hoyt says, and the Air



Force isn't talking.



Defense experts, however, say Hoyt's description of what he claims he saw



that night fits the most educated guesses of the configuration of the



top secret F-19 stealth fighter - a plane the Air Force will not confirm



even exists.



In a scenario that sounds like a science fiction movie, Hoyt says he



and two relatives saw something drop out of the sky and explode into



flames on the other side of a hill about a half-mile away.



"It seemed like it was something other than an airplane, said Hoyt,



26, who was on a camping trip. "Believe it or not, I thought it was



a UFO."



Whatever it was, he says, the military has been treating him royally since



he called Edwards Air Force Base when he returned home the following Sunday



evening and told the Air Force about the photographs.



Hoyt says he and his party were driving east on state Highway 178



about 15 miles northeast of Bakersfiled in the early morning hours of July 12



when they pulled over for a brief rest. He was just climbing back into his



truck when he saw it.



"All I saw were three red lights and a dark image behind them like



an upside-down triangle." Hoyt said, adding that each light was



at a point of the triangle. He said he pulled a camera from the



dashboard of the truck and managed to take two or three pictures



before the plane disappeared over the hill.



Then, a pair of explosions "lit up the sky like it was daylight out."



Contrary to published reports on the day of the accident, Hoyt says, the



aircraft did not explode before it crashed. At least one Air Force source has



been quoted as saying plane exploded in midair, which could explain why the



pilot, who was killed, was not able to eject safetly.



"It was definitely not on fire when it came down," Hoyt said. "Why couldn't



the guy eject?"



After making sure the blaze was reported on an emergency roadside phone, the



party continued to its campground north of nearby Lake Isabella.



His call to Edwards upon returning home brought a sudden response from the



Air Force, Hoyt says. "They took my name and number and within an hour



someone had flown down here and talked to me," he said.



"They didn't press me, but they wanted to see the film in my camera."

Fireball not man-made, experts say





Defense experts Tuesday eliminated "space junk or any man-made object" as an



explanation for a mysterious meteoric fireball that streaked across the



Pacific Coast.



The object, sighted at 8:22 p.m. (CST) Monday, dazzled stargazers from the



California-Oregon border to the Los Angeles area.



"It looked like a long, green meteor but it lasted way too long, arcing



across the sky toward the ocean, then it just blew up," Roy Jackson of



Mountain View, Cal., said.



"It wasn't space junk or any man-made object re-entering the atmosphere, and



we don't track meteors," Del Kindschi of the North American Aerospace Defense



Command at Denver said. "We heard about it but there weren't any satellites



or man-made space objects entering the atmosphere at that time." (UPI)

Mystery lights return to Saratoga





By Kathy Holub



Mercury News Staff Writer





A beautiful apparition has been glowing in the night sky over Saratoga,



leaving viewers baffled and entranced.



About 15 people, all agog, called Santa Clara County dispatchers on



Tuesday night to report a mysterious bright red light that hovered in the



sky from 8:15 to 8:30 and then disappeared.



Dozens of callers described a similar phenomenon on Oct. 16, same time, same



place.



"It was very exciting," said Maureen Denton of Los Gatos, who watched last



week's display during a break in her real estate class at West Valley



College.



"It was very bright, much larger than the lights you see on airplanes. At



one point, something burning or flickering dropped from it. It was just a



tiny little flicker that came down. We all went: `Oooh, what was that?'"



No one seems to know.



That includes Vicki Yauger of Saratoga, who spied the object Tuesday



night while lounging with her husband in thier backyard spa.



Yauger said the light appeared high in the northwestern sky, first moving



toward them, then away.



Through her binoculars, the apparition became a cluster of lights.



"It was scary. When it started getting larger, it seemed to be coming



down," she said.



Yauger didn't see the object fade from view because she had just gone



into the house. Her husband told her the light turned green and slowly



disappeared.



Spokesmen at Moffett Field Naval Air Station said nothing flew out of their



airfield Tuesday that looked like that. And officials at Vandenberg Air Force



Base in Lompoc said they didn't launch a thing Tuesday night. Ditto for Oct.



15.



Other watchers of the night sky - air traffic controllers and astronomers at



Lick Observatory - said they saw nothing unusual.
