Fire in the Sky
On February 18, 2009, in the 8:00 PM darkness, my friend Orlando and I were hiking the bike trail on the west bank of the San Gabriel River. We started from Peck Road and proceeded north (Toward the San Gabriel Mountains). When we got to about a quarter mile passed the Pomona,(60)freeway, we turned back.
Orlando went ahead of me, as he wanted to walk faster. After several minutes I glanced across the river to observe a scene that included the shadows of trees and various lights behind them; including street lights on the other bank in the distance less than a mile away. As most street lights do nowadays they appeared almost orange.
Suddenly I saw what at first appeared to be one of those lights start moving or floating toward the North (the opposite direction) on the other. It would have had to be very low to the ground for me to have to look twice to see if one of those lights, especially since it was moving. I thought was seeing things—I was.
This light appeared to be orange and very bright and very small. As it moved it must have been ascending. I started running down the bike path toward Orlando (because I wanted him, or anybody else to see this with me) who was by this time very far in front of me. It seems like I ran a long time. As I got closer and closer to him, I yelled several times for him to stop. When he did, I ran up to him pointing to the object that was by this time floating high in the sky, and said: “Orlando what’s that? What’s that? Is it a helicopter? Jesus! Is that a helicopter?” He replied “no it’s not”. We both observed for a minute; it and it appeared to be heading somewhat in our direction. He said “what is it?” I said I don’t know. It was mesmerizing.
By this time the object seemed bigger and it had no particular shape. It was bright and moved through the air slowly and appeared to change from orange to white and it appeared hot. It looked like a hot blob in a lava lamp. As we observed it was definitely getting closer. I could actually see flames; it was definitely on fire. I began to get frightened because it looked like it was turning toward us.
But suddenly, it appeared to slow down and stop about a half mile away, on the other side of the river near a power-line tower. It made no sound, it just burned. It was enormous. Then it burned- out. The fire ended. It burned as if sections of it were burning off one by one. As it burned it was dropping what appeared to be the burnt remnants but also it was silvery, as though it were liquid like molten metal.
As it burned away I tried to look in the area in the low sky where it had just been, thinking I’d see what caused the flames or if I could see anything at all. But I didn’t see anything. Also, there were no clouds were the object burned-out, like there would have been if fireworks had exploded there. But no, it simply vanished.
