JULY 31, 2013 …………. HESPERIA CALIFORNIA
Description: The witness called and reported his sighting about 2 years after it occurred. He said that he previously had been afraid to report, but finally decided to do so. He was inside his home and looked out the window. He saw 2 long white triangular objects flying in formation (one behind the other, but slightly to one side). He described the interior of the triangles as a “wavy white” . The objects were only visible for about 15 seconds. The witness said that the objects moved to the southwest and out of range. The objects were flying quite low. The witness thought that the objects were only “two telephone poles” above the ground. The objects were silent and skies were clear at the time of the sighting.
NOTE: Hesperia is close to Edwards Air Force Base.
Previously known as Muroc Air Force Base, Edwards AFB is named in honor of Captain Glen Edwards (1918–1948). During World War II, he flew 50 missions in A-20 Havoc light attack bombers in the North African campaign on extremely hazardous, low-level missions against German tanks, convoys, troop concentrations, bridges, airfields, and a variety of other tactical targets. Edwards became a test pilot in 1943 and spent much of his time at Muroc Army Air Field, on California’s high desert, testing wide varieties of experimental prototype aircraft. He died in the crash of a Northrop YB-49 flying wing near Muroc AFB on 5 June 1948.
The base is next to Rogers Dry Lake, an endorheic desert salt pan whose hard dry lake surface provides a natural extension to Edwards’ runways. This large landing area, combined with excellent year-round weather, makes the base good for flight testing. The lake is a National Historic Landmark.
The base has played a significant role in the development of virtually every aircraft to enter the Air Force inventory since World War II. Almost every United States military aircraft since the 1950s has been at least partially tested at Edwards, and it has been the site of many aviation breakthroughs.
Notable occurrences at Edwards include Chuck Yeager‘s flight that broke the sound barrier in the Bell X-1, test flights of the North American X-15, the first landings of the Space Shuttle, and the 1986 around-the-world flight of the Rutan Voyager.
