Two California witnesses at Burbank are hoping someone else was witness to “four extremely bright, bluish-white lights resembling field lights in a row” that hovered west of a mountain ridge line about 8:30 p.m. on July 2, 2012, according to testimony from the Mutual UFONetwork (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The two were on their way grocery shopping as they drove northweston Sparks Street approaching the Olive Avenue intersection when the lights were first noticed.
“Between the trees, we each saw directly ahead hovering just west of the mountain ridge line four extremely bright bluish-white lights resembling field lights in a row, but hovering and with no supporting structure,” the reporting witness stated. “No object was visible; just the lights.”
The witness said the mountain ridge line lies between Sylmar and Santa Clara.
“The row of lights did not appear to move. We could only see the lights for the briefest of moments, because as we drove through the intersection at Olive Avenue, our view of the mountain was blocked by nearby buildings. It would’ve been approximately 17 miles from our location in Burbank to that spot. If the lights were actually located next to the mountain ridge as they appeared, they would’ve been roughly over Interstate 5 in the New Hall Pass.”
The two skipped the grocery store and attempted to get a better view the lights, but could not find them.
“There were no other lights, planes, choppers or even stars visible. At 8:30 p.m., it was just sunset, so the sky wasn’t dark in the northwest. We both were intensely curious. I was excited. I wanted to follow it. Now, writing this description, I am baffled and eager to find out if anyone else saw it.”
No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on July 2, 2012. Burbank is in Los Angeles County, population 103,340. The above quotes were edited for clarity.
