An armada of bright blue orb UFOs was seen over Bakersfield in California last week.
According to a report filed as case No. 71618 in the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) database, on October 16, 2015, a witness heard a neighbor shouting his name from across the street. The neighbor appeared to be in panic, and the witness thought he needed help urgently. So he ran out to help.
But when he got outside, he was shocked to see hundreds of moving bright bluish white lights in the sky. The fleet of bright lights was spread over a wide expanse of the sky, about 40 to 50 blocks, the witness estimated.
Shocked at the sight, the witness ran back indoors to call his wife and children. By the time his family came out to witness the spectacle, several cars had pulled over and people in the neighborhood were coming out of their homes, gazing up in shock and amazement as the blue lights moved slowly over the city.
The people watched as the lights moved in a formation, rising higher and higher until they disappeared in the night sky.
The witness was able to snap photos of the lights in the sky. But he said the photos do not give an accurate impression of the expanse of the lights because it shows less than a quarter of the entire fleet spread across the sky.
The witness said he ran indoors to grab his camera and tripod in the hope of being able to snap a clearer photo, but by the time he came out, the orbs were even more dispersed and the lights dim because the orbs had risen much higher in the sky.
The witness was also able to snap other strange sights in the sky that sparked rumors of chemtrail planes over Bakersfield.
The report and photos have sparked a debate among online UFO enthusiasts.
“These are optical impression. The UFOs fly that fast that it’s just in the click moment of the camera. Ronald Reagan encountered a UFO near Bakersfield also… maybe there are more under this area.”
“That happened to me once… a fire like orb was seen by my eyes but when I put the cam up nothing registered…”
“I have seen similar sight in N.Z. (Rotorua) only the UFOs were bright red, when I tried filming them at first they weren’t showing up… I thought they were (Chinese) lanterns but on closer examination found they were not.”
“If they had a red glow they were probably Chinese lanterns released in a batch.”
Some enthusiasts thought they could be Chinese lanterns released in a large batch. Others were convinced they were a fleet of alien UFO orbs on a reconnaissance mission. A few thought they could be holographic projections in the sky.
Many enthusiasts reported having witnessed similar sights in the past.
