Chatsworth, California A Blood Red Streak Across The Sky

Date: August 11, 2005
Time: 1:20 a.m.

Hi Brian, I wrote to you the other day regarding the Kecksburgh sighting. I was the person who lived in Pittsburgh and saw the sighting.

I wanted to tell you something I saw during the Perseid meteor shower on August 11, 2005. I went outside with a friend to view the shower, but it was only 10:00 p.m. The shower was not to start until 1:20 a.m. I was looking north from my back yard, when I saw a very bright, blood red streak. It was to low in the sky to be a meteor, and the streak it made, it's hard for me to explain. But at arms length, it would have been only about four inches long. It was only about a second in duration. I just happened to be looking in the right place at that second. All the other meteors I saw that night were your typical whitish, fiery tailed, meteors. Might not be anything, but it was unique in itself.

Additional Information:

Thank you for your prompt response to both. On the night of 8/11/05, I went out in my backyard with a friend, she wanted to have a cigarette. I don't smoke, but went out to talk to her about the Perseid meteor shower that was to happen at 1:30 a.m. The time was only 10:00 p.m. when we went out. I sat on top of my picnic table facing north, and what I saw was no meteor. I'll try to explain what I saw. In the far distance I viewed a very blood red streak that lasted for only a second. I have know idea how far it was, but it traveled so fast it only left a streak about 4 inches long. It had no fiery tail behind it. It was a very thin straight line that reminded me of a laser beam. You wanted to know my location I live in Chatsworth, Ca. Oh by the way, it was traveling from east to west. My daughter has also seen UFOs, my father told me his account in the 50s, and I have a very good friend who had a couple of strange experiences with UFOs. Hope to talk to you soon and thank you again.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
