Interstate 5 mystery lights
For several years now mysterious lights have been seen in the night sky along the Interstate 5 corridor from Kettleman City to Los Banos.
Witnesses have reported seeing a triangle shaped craft with a light at each point hover over the highway. The craft would fly over an overpass (it has been seen over Manning Ave) making a 90 degree bank as it would then make a steep dive as it crossed over the highway flying roughly 15’ to 20’ above traffic before making another 90 degree bank turn then descend to nearly 2’ above the ground, looking like it was about to land before ascending at nearly a 45 degree angle to start the pattern of flight all over again. Witness report that it would make the same looping pattern until they lost sight of it. They would try to get away from it as quickly as possible, afraid that the craft would crash into them when it buzzed them flying over the highway.
No red, green, or strobe light that is standard on a conventional craft has been seen. Just three bright lights are the only source of illumination from the craft. There are reports of the craft being a thin wedge shape, but this can’t be confirmed. No sound has been heard as well.
What these lights are is not certain. Sightings from as early as 2002 to as recent as August 2005 have been reported. Some speculate it is nothing more then a crop duster which would make sense since the stretch of highway cuts through agricultural land, but one has to wonder about its erratic flight patterns. One would think that the FAA would find out who this rouge pilot is before someone was hurt. But three years later and it is still spooking drivers who happen to drive along the Interstate 5 corridor between the small farm towns of Coalinga and Kettleman City.
Personally I think these are just crop dusters working late at night (when most do). When I lived in Madera out in the country, coming home late one night I saw three lights similar to what's been described. Curious I drove towards them and pulled to the side of the road to watch. The lights did dive, but as they ascended again they turned off and I could see a green and red light. Navigational lights for an airplane.
What I find interesting is that these lights have been reported for over a decade and always in the same time of year. You would think one of the UFO orginizations out there would investigate these, but I haven't heard a thing. Perhaps I'll take a drive out there one night and see if I can find anything for myself.
