Large lighted balloons and kites flying over Bakersfield at night
Two nights ago I was on my way home from work when I saw a UFO. I stopped my truck in East Bakersfield and watched as a balloon with a big bright light flew over. It was headed northeast. I took some pics but they just show an indistinct light in the sky.

What I saw was a very bright light hanging and rocking from the bottom of a balloon or bag, moving slowly in a straight line northwest. It flew right over, I got a pretty good look. It looked like a toy or a prank, but I was surprised as it continued into the distance and disappeared into the clouds! It must have been huge, it was much higher than I imagined. it made zero noise, I turned the truck off and listened.

It was 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday the 21st PDT. I called the police, they said no one else reported it.

I was telling some guys at work and one mentioned maybe they are measuring radiation levels in Bakersfield using balloons. This actually rang a bell with me!

So I came home and googled Bakersfied UFO and found out a large lighted kite was sighted over the town on March 18th. Unlike my balloon, hundreds of people saw the kite last Friday night. And they reported it. A sheriff looked at it through night vision and said it was a kite. Thing is, it was visible all over town and lit brightly. It must have been huge too.

Anyway a little unnerving to think of these gigantic lighted toys flying around overhead in the middle of the night! My buddy guessed they must have to light them to track them, and I was thinking to keep airplanes and helicopters from hitting them too.

Here's the link to the kite from last Friday:

I guess no one else saw the balloon. Oh, well, I know I saw it, and it was really pretty neat! I'm wondering if it was the same or similar thing as the kite and we just saw it different.

As you can see Bakersfield is on the front lines for radiation hits. So the balloon kite things taking measurements makes sense.

The light was very bright, not a glow stick. Brighter than a plane or helicopter. I did think Chinese lantern but it didn't seem to be a flame. Maybe it was though. When that thing flew into the clouds I was astonished it had to be gigantic to look that big and be up so high.

It was right above me and I could see it clearly the pictures don't do justice at all :(

Wish I'd taken video instead of pics but too late now.

Re: Large lighted balloons and kites flying over Bakersfield at night
I saw @ 4-6 large lighted balloons last summer around August I was in the pool with my daughters when we looked up in the air because a light called my attention there they were floating not too high but very near it was really kinda scary the way they were floating to the left just passing us by. It had to be before 10:00 p.m. because where we live the pool closes at 10:00 p.m. I reside @ Planz Rd./Stine it was very visible what the hek was this?
