Two Sacramento City College, CA, students report spotting two UFOs seconds apart over their campus in the afternoon of October 2, 2014.

The two students, who are friends met after a full day of classes and were reclining on a grassy area of campus at 4:40 PM when they noticed a white colored object silently flying across the sky overhead, according to reports they filed with the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

“At first glance, it appeared to be a feather being pushed by the wind, but we soon realized it was at much too high of an altitude and was moving far too fast”, wrote one of the students.

According to the witnesses, the object “resembled a scalene triangle, and spun about and tilted at odd angles while it flew across the sky.”

The object’s movement reminded the witnesses of how a plastic bag twirls and flips in the wind. The witnesses brushed off the odd, 20 second flyby, “laughing at the absurdity of the sight,” and blaming it on exhaustion after a long day of classes.

What they saw a few seconds later changed their minds.

A second white object, about the same size as the first flew across the sky in the same direction but looked even more strange. Unlike the first triangle shaped object, the second object “was perfectly spherical and was not moving about in the same sporadic way as the first.”

The silent sphere also flew across the sky in about 20 seconds.

The witnesses attempted to photograph the UFOs with an iPhone, but the objects were too small and distant for the camera lens to record.

Both objects were described as “smaller than the sun.”


Original witness reports:

Witness report #1:

My friend pointed out the first craft to me when it was almost overhead. It appeared at first to be an all-white airplane moving very, very fast. As it flew, we could see it turn over and around a few times, like a plastic bag would when blown about by the wind. It seemed to be in the shape of a scalene triangle with it’s tip bent back on itself. We watched it until it appeared to fly down and disappear over the horizon. I pulled out the camera on my cellphone but the object wouldn’t show up against the sky.

The second object appeared about 5-10 seconds after the first one disappeared. Again, my friend pointed it out to me. This one was a sphere, the same color and size at the first one. It only reflected a small amount of light. It followed the same trajectory and again disappeared over the horizon. Event took place at Sacramento City College, and the objects were viewed while lying down in the grass in the courtyard. Both objects were smaller than the sun.

Witness report #2:

My friend and I, two community college students from Sacramento, had just gotten out of our classes and were hanging out together on campus. We were sitting in a spot of grass near the library, which is a fairly open space with a clear view of the sky. Both having had a long day, we were reclined in the grass staring up at the sky when at about 4:40PM, we both noticed something white making its way across the vast stretch of blue. At first glance, it appeared to be a feather being pushed by the wind, but we soon realized it was at much too high of an altitude and was moving far too fast. Upon further inspection, we could see that it resembled a scalene triangle, and spun about and tilted at odd angles while it flew across the sky.

We brushed this off somewhat nonchalantly at first, laughing at the absurdity of the sight. After all, it had been a long day, and we assumed that it was, indeed, just a feather or some other spec of debris, and our eyes were playing tricks on us making the object in question look stranger. That is, until the next object came in. It had only been 10 seconds after the first, if even that, when another white object hovered across the sky in the same manner. This object was perfectly spherical and was not moving about in the same sporadic way as the first. That is, if it was, it wasn’t noticeable because of its shape. It was at the same altitude and was within our view for the same amount of time as the other, a mere 20 seconds or so of a quick and soundless hovering as it made its way across the plain of our vision.

We reported the sighting via hotline right when the incident was over. My friend tried to capture photos and videos of the 2nd object in question, but it was so high up and thus appeared so small that it wasn’t picked up by their iPhone camera. Being that these two objects were so small and were silent, we’re unsure of whether or not there were any other witnesses.
