Description: While on a church camping trip over easter vacation in 1965, I saw something I will NEVER forget. We were between El Centro, California and Yuma, Arizona when our car stopped to let us get out for a break.

When I looked up in the sky, I saw at least 50, probably more "lights" moving from west to east.

At first I thought they were planes with their lights on, however I started to realize it was ALOT, and I mean ALOT, of planes, or lights. In my opinion, to many to be just planes flying. They were not in any formation(s), just in the north sky looking from my location (along I-80). It looked like a WW11 bomber run. I was amazed, and actually as a 15 year old kid, somewhat scared. At first it seemed kinda "neat", but after watching them for awhile I realized something was wrong with this picture. WAY to many "planes" in my opinion, and I had never seen anything like that before. I was just out in YUMA this past weekend, and recalled what I had seen. I decided to look up UFO sightings in 1965 after I got home. A a retired Police officer (Chief of Police), I know I saw something that to this day has never been explained, or fully comprehended by myself. Just thought I would share that because I felt I needed to. Thanks.
