Full Description of event/sighting: Date of event: July 14, 2001, at about 9:30 p.m. Where: Fresno, California.

My sighting was the same day when the U.S. shot down an incoming target missile coming in from the pacific as part of the SDI military program. They hit the missile leaving a trail of smoke and unused fuel in the western sky. This was at sundown.

My sighting happened at about 9:30 p.m. I was in my backyard looking up about 45 degrees from the level to the east and noticed that a bright white star like object coming in from space as this is the way that it seemed to me. As it came in it was traveling very fast. Then it hit the atmosphere and when it did it blew up or expanded from the white light to an object that looked like the end of a kaleidoscope. Meaning the object was about the size of a fifty cent piece at arms length and was round, with rings of blue, white and violet colors. It also had an about 18 degree pie shape missing. I have seen pictures on the web of objects like this but they all have been black and white. As the object hit the atmosphere and expanded it changed direction from coming in toward the earth to traveling parallel to the earth for a short time and then blinked out. All this took only a bout two to three seconds if that long. If I had not been looking at this exact spot in the sky I would not have seen anything.

I have to note that east over the mountains is area 51 and China Lake Naval Station. So this might have been one of the governments vehicles coming back to base after watching the SDI target practice.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
