San Bernardino, California Boomerang

Date: 1978
Time: Evening

I left Air Force active duty in 1978 for about 2 1/2 years. My last active duty assignment at that time was George AFB California, just outside of Victorville (It's closed now). Anyway, after separating from the Air Force at that time we lived in San Bernardino, CA. From our house, we could see both the San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountain ranges. Our next door neighbors were temporary foster parents, and I would help out with the kids once in a while. One night, this 16 year old boy that was staying with them and I were sitting in our back yard just after sundown talking about various things. As we sat there, we were looking at the last light on the mountains. It was a clear night, and as a matter of fact there were several aircraft in the air staked up, waiting for clearance to land at Los Angeles International airport, about 90 miles away from us. Anyway, as we sat there we both saw this very large object drift slowly over us and toward the mountains. This thing was really high up, higher than the aircraft waiting to land at LAX and at least 20 or 30 times larger than any of those aircraft. It was sort of a boomerang shape and was reflecting the lights below on what looked like a brushed aluminum skin, with no other lighting. We had it in sight for about 30 seconds to a minute until it disappeared between the mountain ranges.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
