A California witness reports more than 50 red-orange orbs rose over a nearby reservoir in Bonita, moved into formations, and then rearranged into triangle and diamond shapes as they traveled north to south before “disappearing into the night sky,” according to August 27, 2011, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was attending a high school reunion at Bonita Golf Course when the objects appeared as the group was listening to a band.
“Many people saw these lights,” the witness stated. “I tried to capture on my cell phone camera but they don’t show well. There were literally 50+ of these things in the sky doing various formations: arc of maybe 10 or 12, then reformatting into triangles, diamond shapes. As the moved south across the sky they seemed to just disappear all in the exact same area of the sky.”
