Oakland, California Unusual Shaped Craft

Date: May 29, 2006
Time: 2:32 p.m.

Location of Sighting: Driving on the 880 freeway going NW
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Looked like a deep sea angle fish.

Full Description of event/sighting: It was a clear hot afternoon, no clouds in the sky, when I noticed a very low flying plane.
Since we were on a slow moving freeway it had been in my field of vision for at least 3 minutes. There was nothing else in the sky so I centered my full attention on this, what I thought at the time was a, plane.

It was flying very low, and I could clearly see it, but at the same time, I couldn't see it. The Sun was so hot this plane had a brilliant whiteness around it that fluctuated, I thought it was heat reflecting from the wings. The body was fat, shiny black, but short, it was big, but it began to appear more ball-like, than long. The traffic had come to a stop momentarily and that is when I noticed the object was moving much too slow for such a heavy looking plane, it was practically hovering. It moved so slowly that the white part that I had initially thought was hot wings began really fluctuating and getting thinner.

The craft had been turning all the time and now a different position of it was facing parallel to me. I could see the whole side of it and there were no wings. It seem to be covered in silver spikes, because the sun threw them into the light, and made the rest in shadow. Where there were no spikes, the body of the craft was shiny black. The front of the craft from the side looked like a gaping angle fish with it's mouth wide open.

Because of the wavy heat haze surrounding this craft, it was hard to believe what I was clearly seeing.

I still wanted to believe it was a plane, when it rotated even further and I saw a red line extending from the head or front of it, with a large red ball at the end of it. This is what made me think it looked very much like a deep sea angle fish. The red line and ball were in a fixed position and seemed to be firmly attached to the front of this thing.

Knowing this was no plane, I gladly glued my face to the dashboard realizing I was looking at a genuine daytime UFO! I was not going to take my eye off this excellent specimen of strangeness! Then 'poof!' As huge and solid as it was it disappeared right in front of my eyes, it didn't accelerate, it just was not there. I had to smile.

A week later on this same freeway at about the same time, but going SW this time, I noticed planes flying out from the nearby airport, they all looked basic with wings.

It was a clear hot day but none of them caught the reflection of the Sun. Suddenly I noticed a bright flare-up in the sky.
It was a fuselage horizontal to me, but as the glare died down it just appeared silver, like a cigar. I quickly dismissed it for a plane, when it went 'poof' and disappeared in front of my eyes. I have begun to rethink my position on there are no UFO's flying thru Oakland, and in broad daylight yet! I must remember to outfit the car with binoculars and a video camera.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
