Chico, CA

Sighted on Sunday 16. February 2003
Reported on
Shape: Fireball | Duration: 6 sec.

Driving home in the evening headed east, I looked north out the van window and saw what apeered to be a rocket entering the atmosphere. I called to my wife to look and we looked at this shooting streek of light for a good 6 seconds. I proceeded to head to the Moutain terrain where it would be lost out of sight behind the moutains and clouds. I in a frantic state turn the radio to a news station in expectation of the begining of an attack from N. korea or somthing of this nature. To my suprise got nothing. When I got home called the police to report it, I was 1 of 2 in 20 mins. to report. I call the local news tv station and again was only 1 of 2. I belive it could be part of the space shuttle columbia.((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and she sounded quite lucid and sober-minded. He contacted Chico, CA, 9-1-1 facility immediately after his sighting. PD))((FOLLOW-UP CORRESPONDENCE FROM WITNESS))Dear Mr. Davenport,Thanks so much for the on going updates. I spent some time since our submission visiting the Web site to familiarize myself with it. You have a very interesting and tremendously challenging job! I have a whole new awareness and appreciation of the job sorting out UFO's etc. It definitely requires a certain personality, intelligence and integrity.Our experience has definitely changed our life. I always thought it was other people who saw those types of things (i.e. comets and things flying in the sky). It felt really good to know that there are people that we could call after having that kind of experience. So you might pass it on to the powers that be that the arrangement that you have with the local authorities in our experience was a highly effective one from our perspective.Best Wishes to you.Until next time?????((END))
