Me and my girlfriend were driving south on Lander Ave.in Hilmar CA. at around 2 A.M. on Dec. 27 2008. All of the sudden noticed the sky pulsate and get bright. We both leaned forward because the light seem to come from above the car, I was traveling around 50-60 mph. The sky was illuminated for a few seconds and I noticed 4 white/blueish lights in a line traveling east at a very high rate of speed. They were visible behind the clouds for a split second then vanished. These were nt military flares, it was not a shooting star, and no plane moves this fast. I can't estimate the altitude of the lights but I know they were high enough to light up the sky for about 5 seconds. I was in the Army, I've been in Iraq, I've seen war planes, flares, missles you name it. What I witnessed tonight was something I've never seen. I was not drinking, and I don't do drugs.
