A California couple driving along westbound Covell Boulevard in Davis 1.5 miles east of Wildhorse Golf Course report a “dark, triangular object” with four lights per side under 200 feet in the air on January 14, 2011, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
They first noticed “white lights in a triangular formation outlining what appeared to be a dark, triangular object” as they passed a large open field.
“I don’t remember exactly how many lights, but I want to say four lights per side, including the corners – all white,” the husband stated. “One light was blinking about once per second – I think I recall the one blinking light to be the ‘leading’ light. It appeared to be 15-20 yards wide and was about 150 feet to 200 feet in the air. It was about 200 yards from us. It seemed to be flying at about 10-20 mph.”
The entire sighting lasted less than two minutes before the object was obstructed from view by local homes.
“I rolled down my window as we were passing it in the opposite direction and could not hear a sound over the ‘driving wind.'”
No images or video were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on January 17, 2010.
California is a current UFO ALERT 3 rating, with a higher number of UFO sightings nationally. California had 45 UFO reports in December 2010, the highest reporting state in the nation.
