Appearance / Description of Object(s)
No lights, dark gray like a fog bank. Eliptical or oval in shape...it was solid mass...the color a plane off in the distance. It was very large, more blimp shaped or a fat saucer shape. It did not move...was hovering. As we were almost even with it, it appeared to be the length of a football field and approx. 1-1/2 stories high.
Size of Object(s)
Because we saw it at a distance initially, the relative size would be perhaps 3 inches if my arms were outstretched...my fingers would be approximately 3 inches apart. This was probably from several miles away.
Description of Area / Surroundings
The middle of nowhere. Between Barstow and Baker CA...perhaps half way in between. There were some structures but I don't know exactly what they were...i.e., power plants, radar tower, or some other unknown building. When we were close in on object, I didn't remember seeing any structures around.
Full Description & Details
My husband and I were driving north on I-15 just north of Barstow CA somewhere before Baker...perhaps 1/3 or 1/2 of way in between. We both noticed an object in the sky, which my husband first thought to be a cloud. Daylight was just approaching and we could see for miles in all directions...full view of all mountains surrounding the desert. This object was not a cloud because there were NO CLOUDS anywhere. It had mass and it was dark gray in color. From the distance it was perhaps the shape of a blimp, eliptical in form but solid in mass. It hovered, not moving in any direction. I watched this object from the time we first saw it as my husband had to keep his eyes on the road. The closer we got the more I knew it had mass, it was not a cloud nor a plane nor a blimp nor anything I could identify. There were so many contrails in the early morning sky as well. Hundreds of them. As we got closer the object did not move. It was perhaps as high in the sky as the space needle in Seattle and perhaps the length of one football field. There was no sound, there were no lights. It appeared oblong or eliptical in shape. When we were almost even with it, when it just erased itself...vaporized I'd say. It was like closing down one's ipad...when you lock the ipad and slide the lock function from right to left. You could see the gray erasing ... first it was whole, then 1/3 of he size then half the size until it simply disappeared, becoming invisible to the eye in just seconds!
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Absolutely not. How do you vaporize into invisibility from mass to nothingness in seconds?
Retired, homemaker, approaching the golden years. Of sound mind and eyesight...so far. One year of college. Background in secretarial/administrative assistant. Husband is co owner of a Printing and Direct Mail business.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I'm neutral on them. I saw what I saw. I don't read about them nor study them. I am a very Christian, God fearing woman. As far as after the sighting...I am perplexed but not worried because I have my faith in God.
Just wanted to report this to someone. Sure wish you could do a study on those contrails as some did not appear to be actual contrails but I wouldn't be able to elaborate on that.
