Sighting Time: 8:30
Day/Night: Nighttime
Duration: 2 minutes

No. of Witnesses: 2

Size of Object(s): Difficult to tell, because it was in the distance. Maybe 50 to 100 feet long, but this guess is not reliable.

Appearance / Description of Object(s)
From our angle, the object appeared to be a cylinder, cigar shape. (Though perhaps were were seeing just the edge.) It had a series of blue lights which were flashing in different patterns. The most noteworthy feature of this object were the movements- fast, erratic, banking, turning. Sometimes horizontal, sometimes vertical.

Description of Area / Surroundings
Residential area of Fresno, near Clovis, CA. We were facing Northeast, so the object was on the edge of the City.

Full Description & Details
It was 8:30pm on the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend 2011. We had come back from dinner at a restaurant, and we were unloading our baby out of the car and standing in the driveway of my mother-in-law's (former) house on East Sample Avenue, Fresno California. My wife and I were the only witnesses. She saw the object first and asked me what I thought it was. We were facing Northeast, and the cigar-shaped blue UFO was hovering low on the horizon, above the houses. It was in the distance, perhaps 1 mile away. It had bright lights, that were flashing in a pattern. It was moving fast, erratically, it was banking, twisting, turning. Sighting lasted 1 or 2 minutes until it diseappeared below the horizon. Not sure if it had landed. 549 East Sample Avenue is on the northern end of Fresno, not far from the rural edge of town. (My mother-in-law no longer lives at this address.)

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Maybe secret U.S. military aircraft. But NOT a conventional airplane, helicopter, blimp, balloon, satellite.

Personal Background
Bachelor's degree, Ohio State University. Previously worked for a bank, and video production company that specializes in weddings.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
This is the only UFO I have ever witnessed firsthand. Before this sighting I had not spent much time thinking (or reading) about UFOs. But after this sighting, I've been researching the subject as much as possible.

Other Comments
I reported it to MUFON, but I never received a confirmation email, so I'm not sure if this sighting is in their database.
