Date of Sighting: July 4, 1984

Location of Sighting: Atwater, California

Number of UFO(s): 1 then broke into 2 objects

Further Description of Sighting: It was the evening of July 4, 1984. I was stationed at Castle AFB, located in Atwater, CA. On this evening, after all the Fourth of July celebration, myself, wife and our 4 small children went to the nearby lake looking for a small toy my toddler son had misplaced there.

While there, my wife suddenly asked, “What’s that?” Looking up into the night sky, we saw a glowing fiery object streaking across the sky. Being in the Air Force and stationed at a B52 base, I suspected what the object could only be….a nuclear warhead. Turning to my wife I said, “It won’t hurt. It’ll all be over in an instant.” As we all embraced, I glanced up to see the object separate into two glowing pieces.

Both streaked across the sky then, as if a miracle occurred, they both seemed light up brightly then slowly fade away. On the way home, we listened to all the local radio stations and were amazed at the number of sightings people had reported. The next day, I inquired at the base what those objects were but never did actually find out.

I was wondering if anyone out there has ever heard of this or actually knows what it was we saw that night.
