Full Description of event/sighting: Approx 7:20 PM on 2-19-08 I was standing in my backyard talking on the phone when I looked up to see this object that consisted of four glowing orbs that seemed to be undulating and sparkling. Not like strobe lights of an aircraft but as if the atmosphere was burning off of an invisible force field. It was moving from south to north over Santa Rosa mountains at a slow rate of speed, maintaining altitude guestimation approx 8 to 10 thousand feet, due to the fact that the cloud cover was down around San Jacinto Mountain which is 8500 feet at the peak. So it had to be below 8000 ft.or so. As I observed the object, it seemed to be changing shape and then at one point it literally began to shower down what looked like molten metal or some kind of sparks that seemed to rain down from below it, orange in color, similar to what you would see like slag from a welder. The object had to be as big as a standard size home or larger. It then stopped raining the orange sparks and it changed to blue and white sparks.

All the while continuing to move from south to north. And then it seemed to almost come to a stop as it slowly became smaller and then disappeared below the clouds, as if it was not there. This is the third sighting of this object over a one month period of time. It has always been approx between 7 and 8 pm with some cloud cover. It has always been below the cloud cover. The first two sightings of the object it was moving west to east and came to a complete stop and hovered in one place. The first sighting there were three of us that witnessed it. The second sighting only two of us and the third sighting, two of us. Also the third sighting, which was the most recent, it seemed to be flying at a lower altitude and moving south to north vs. west to east.

It seems to be the same object because of the same colors which is an amber orange glowing object and the entire object is emanating the light, not from external lights. After the third sighting we are wondering what exactly we are seeing. It is definitely not a meteorite or something of that nature. I took astronomy in college and astrophysics and I know that we have nothing in the sky that can do what this object has done and I do not believe that this is a natural phenomenon. If you have any feedback please call me at the number above. I will do my best to video tape the object if I see it again. Now that I have seen it 3 times, I have my video camera ready and will try to capture it on film. I am curious to know whether or not anyone else has reported seeing this object at the same time. Please respond as soon as possible. An extremely curious observer, Thank you very much. PS - I know I'm not crazy because I was not the only one that saw it.

Thank you to the witness for the excellent report.
