Sunday's UFO Sighting Over Burbank Taken Seriously by MUFON

Did you see anything in the skies over the past few days?

Always around Independence Day there seems to be a bunch of over Studio City. (See these r.)

, the state director of the, who helps investigate these claims, told Studio City Patch on Tuesday that he's taking these sightings seriously, and wondered if our readers have spotted anything, or recorded the sightings, as they have with past incidents. (See )

There were things seen in the sky in Burbank and Sylmar areas on July 1, Sunday night.

"Perhaps we can find a couple more witnesses," Murillo said. The voluntary MUFON group offers an investigation of these incidents with a "healthy skepticism" and publishes their field investigations in an extensive database (click here.)

The case was first reported by National UFO Examiner Roger Marsh in this compelling story (click here for full report.) They provided the images attached above.

The witness report reads:

My roommate and I were in the car; I was driving us to Fresh 'n Easy grocery store, heading northwest on Sparks St. in Burbank, CA, approaching the Olive Avenue intersection.

Between the trees, we each saw directly ahead hovering just west of the mountain ridge line four extremely bright bluish-white lights resembling field lights, in a row but hovering and with no supporting structure. No object was visible; just the lights. This mountain ridge line lies between Sylmar and Santa Clarita. The row of lights did not appear to move. We could only see the lights for the briefest of moments, because as we drove through the intersection at Olive Ave., our view of the mountain was blocked by nearby buildings. It would've been approx. 17 miles from our location in Burbank to that spot. If the lights were actually located next to the mountain ridge as they appeared, they would've been roughly over Interstate 5 in the New Hall Pass.

Reporter Raymond Samuels also wrote about the sightings and reported that similar "holographic-like bluish lights" were seen a few days before in New Mexico.

For anyone who might have seen something about this particular event, the field investigator assigned to the case is Alex Mistretta, at  (323) 251-0634.

The Southern California tings take place monthly in Studio City at the . The next meeting is taking place at a bigger location at the Beverly Garland Hotel.

Easy, do you see the airport in the middle? normally the airplains arrive from west but some times they switch to northeast and if there is more than one airplain descending it looks like a line of lights
Firebird Tomonaga July 04, 2012 at 03:57 AM
The reason they appeared to hover is because looking directly at an incoming plane, it's hard to see movement, so it appears to hover. And with the plane's fuselage reflecting the setting sun, it would blend into the sky, which is why no craft was seen. But this is nothing more than a plane approaching one of the two airports seen on the map between the lights and the viewer.
Matt Stephens July 04, 2012 at 08:51 PM
If they were multiple aircraft wouldn't the lights be of different sizes and intensities? Those lights all appear identical. I believe without a doubt intelligent life exists out there, lots of it most likely, but the vast distances they would have to travel to get here and the speeds necessary for that always make me skeptical of UFO reports. Sure would be cool to meet beings from another planet though.

My 18 year old son and his friends were at Disneyland last week when they saw this, and the lights. He could give you a better accounting of it.

I do believe in UFO's but this one looks like an airplane... and you really can't take this clear of a picture if you're in Burbank all the way to Sylmar.

The Martians are coming...too many bored people. Volunteer or something meaningful. When they finally get here, you can say hi.
Miki Henderson July 06, 2012 at 03:46 AM
I wish people would stop scaring us with this, yikes!
Paul B July 06, 2012 at 02:38 PM
Theeeeyyyyyyreeeee Heeeeeerrrrreeee!
Budman Simpson July 06, 2012 at 04:12 PM
Not an airplane , swamp gas, or weather balloon this time... But it is time to wake up and smell the coffee, disbelievers !
mike king July 06, 2012 at 07:19 PM
Those who denied climate change have changed their tune, even if the causes haven't been entirely proven. Our government is finally admitting that there are unexplained objects in the sky. These are the same officials that made fun of sightings while maintaining records that show convincing proof of "something" that we can't explain. Covering up only causes anxierty and confusion. We need to get to the truth and stop the charade. Our people are smart enough to handle the truth. Why would they panic? These sightings have been around before the Bible, which pulls no punches.
Paul B July 06, 2012 at 11:42 PM
Now someone just has to take MUFON seriously and we may have something...lol
Alex White July 07, 2012 at 02:53 PM
Yeah, them alien beings and those ornery punk rock "renters" in The Triangle, are really really scary.
Hector July 07, 2012 at 10:46 PM

It is a big ass universe. Anyways, I was a witness 2a sighting in garden grove it looked like it was hubering above the huntington beach or around that area it was a line of light blue lights moving around in circular motion it would hubber quick 4m one side 2 the other side it was doing that 4like 1/2 an hr then took off fast across the sky some friends of mine that lived in riverside called me it was over there in secs.. now give it a thought nd analize this this happened 3-4 months ago..did anybody see that siting???
Firebird Tomonaga July 08, 2012 at 12:43 AM
Hey don't get me wrong. I DO believe that we are not the only life in this universe. In fact I have seen UFOs. I am just saying that this particular picture is of an airplane.
Skraeling July 08, 2012 at 05:23 AM
Couldn't be or Jesus or Mohammed or Moses would have said something....

On July 4th 2012 my wife, myself and my mother inlaw went to Mc Cambridge park in Burbank just like every year. We sit on the benches at the soccer field and watch the fire works. At around 7:45 pm we observed what appeared to be very bright light a few miles to the east, It was flying from a low altitude to about 3000 feet. At that point it dimmed to what appeared to be an orange orb and it flew from the east to the west at a high rate of speed. As it past our location it looked like a glass orb at least 30 feet in diameter that was illuminated with an internal orange glow. The object made no sound. I am an amateur astronomer and have spent 40 years watching the sky's Also I grew up in the Antelope valley and have seen everything our government has flown. the object I saw defied my experience as to what should be flying. Dont have a clue as to what it was.

I always love these stories. I'm fascinated by this topic.

EVERYONE IS SEEING THEM...THEY ARE NOT OUT OF BURBANK AIRPORT. THEY LINE P IN A ROW ...THEN THEY FORM TRIANGLE FORMATIONS ... I HAVE LIVED IN PROXIMITY TO AIRPORT FOR 25 YEARS AND NEVER SAW THESE UNTIL RECENT TIMES. THEY ARE PULSATING ROUND OBJECTS. THEY OTHER PART OF THE " PHENOMENON" IS THAT EVERYONE WHO TELLS THEIR STORY OF A SIGHTING TO SOMEONE WHO IS SKEPTICAL...WELL IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL THE SKEPTIC SEES IT FOR THEMSELVES. MY HUSBAND TOLD ME AND I DID NOT REALLY BELIEVE ...THEN I SAW IT WITH HIM....THEN WE TOLD OUR NEIGHBOR, WHO WAS SKEPTIC....THEN WE WENT TO HIS HOUSE ABOUT 4-5 WEEKS LATER AND HE TOLD US HIS STORY ABOUT HIS SIGHTING. THE FACT THAT YOU ARE SO SKEPTICAL LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THAT YOU MIGHT SEE IT YOURSELF IF YOU LIVE IN THE BURBANK AREA. BY THE WAY BEFORE THEY "HOVER" THEY / ASCEND IN "UNISON" THEN STOP IN A LINE FORMATION, THEN SOME WILL TAKE OFF TO A CENTRAL LOCATION AND LEAVE OTHERS BEHIND , WHICH THEN FORM OTHER FORMATIONS, LIKE TRIANGLES.

Mary McGrath February 17, 2013 at 08:26 PM
I'd welcome a visit from an alien, especially if they could rid us of the physical afflictions we all must endure.
Mary McGrath February 17, 2013 at 08:27 PM
Wish we had a group closer to Culver City, the Heart of Screenland. Would love to hear these stories Seija...
