Petaluma

Petaluma, California, USA; October 22, 2019

Name: Sparkler

Date of Sighting: October 22, 2019

Location of Sighting: Petaluma CA just miles from Lucchesi Park.

Number of UFO(s), including the Color(s), Size(s) and Shape(s): One, a bright white flash in the sky illuminating white smoke from what appeared to have been an explosion. The thing fell, with a green glow illuminating more smoke behind it. It suddenly extinguished its lights entirely after falling for a couple of seconds.

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: No more than a couple of miles, it was below cloud level.

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): Down towards the ground – it fell.

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): There were at least four planes in the sky minutes after the object fell, three at great heights, one flying low (likely just a local one, and unrelated to the incident).

Further Description of Sighting: The glow and motion of the object were reminiscent of a sparkler, the kind you wave around on the fourth of July. But this was clearly an explosion, and made no sound at all.

Petaluma, California, USA; November 10, 2010

Name: Richard Wagner

Date of Sighting: 11-10-2010 2220 PST

Location of Sighting: Petaluma, Calif.

Shape(s) of UFO(s): Wing, Boomerang shape

Size(s) of UFO(s): unknown

Color(s) of UFO(s): yellow-gold

Number of UFO(s): 1

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: unknown

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): South to North

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): airliner in opposite direction

Further Description of Sighting: Standing outside in my backyard and admiring the clearness of this night sky of the stars with a buddy, then I notice a delta shaped (Boomerang shape, but not spinning) flying North from San Francisco over Petaluma and bearing to the right towards Sacramento, Ca. It was a yellow-gold illuminated shape but appeared to be semi- translucent and very dim compared to the stars and a plane flying in an opposite direction towards S.F.

The UFO was traveling at a speed about as fast as civilian airplanes I have observed over the years. There was no sounds coming from the UFO. The lights did not flicker, no strobe light indicators or left and right indicator lights at tips of this flying wing. The underside was completely illuminated at about 1/10th the brightness of a star. Just a light halo of brightness. There was no moon out and it was way passed sundown at 2220 PST.

The wing appeared to be 5 times the size of the airlines plane that passed it either above or below. I could not tell the altitudes of either craft,, but the airliner was flying the same course that most planes in out area fly in when approaching S.F. Bay Area airports and the wing was flying in the opposite direction. I watch the planes all the time from my backyard in Petaluma.

My friend and I were both observers after I first spotted the UFO. It was about 15 to 20 seconds of viewing time. We both were in the US Air Force in the later 1960’s and worked on aircraft. We know shapes of the new stealth aircraft and this was a bit different and they are not illuminated like this craft was.

I don’t know if anyone else in this region saw this UFO, but I would like to find out if others have and what it possibly is.

I was able to observe it for about 2miles from the Petaluma Blvd No. to Madison Street.
I sensed that it was government. It was not frightening in the least. I have lived in Petaluma for all of my life and I have not observed anything like this.

Petaluma, California, USA; September 24, 2009

Name: Helen Gale

Date of Sighting (and time if known): September 24, 2009 about noon

Location of Sighting: Petalumua, California, USA

Shape(s) of UFO(s) (If Known): Looked like a bright star but it was in the afternoon sky

Size(s) of UFO(s) (If Known): Very high up but looked round

Color(s) of UFO(s) (If Known): silver

Number of UFO(s) (If Known): One

Distance of UFO(s) in sky (If Known): extremely high up

Direction of Travel for UFO(s) (If Known): Stayed in one spot for a time (about three minutes) then made two right angle turns (perfect geometry), then sped toward the Northwest like a shooting star.

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): Passenger air liner flying South seemed much lower than the UFO

Further Description of Sighting: I was sun bathing and saw this bright object just to the right of the sun facing south. It was almost straight up. It was not a star although it looked like one would appear at night. Very bright to outshine the sun! The right angle turns were perfect, not possible for any other object I know of. After about three minutes it sped off so fast it almost seemed to ‘blink out’.
