A mysterious light photographed over Northern California before sunrise on Sept. 12. 2014

Americans in the West are still buzzing about a mysterious light that flashed across the sky early Friday, with no confirmed explanation yet for the phenomenon.

The light was seen in the early morning hours in the San Francisco Bay area, as well as in Oregon and Nevada.

“I am used to seeing planes early in the morning with lights, but this was different,” one witness told “This had something coming out of it, it wasn’t just the light. I could see it spraying something.”

Another witness echoed the comment about the object emitting something:

“This morning when I was leaving for work, before I got into my car I noticed that there was some type of object in the air with a type of floodlight on, and white fog/smoke was billowing out of it – as if something was being sprayed into the air. I tried to take a photo with my iPhone but it didn’t come out. This was at 5:58am – I live in Kirkwood – and the object appeared to be just over the area of Clayton Valley Shopping Center at Clayton/Kirker Pass … could this be fogging for mosquitoes? I was a bit concerned because the object was clearly spraying some substance into the air … with the floodlight on. Then the light went off, and I couldn’t see or hear the sounds from a plane or anything, it was very strange.”

Barry Formslag of Novato, California, told KPIX-TV the lights he saw were actually orange in color.

“About 6 a.m. this morning, I came out, I was walking down the driveway and I looked up at the sky and saw this little orange ball – above the Redwood trees,” Formslag said. “All of a sudden these lights just came down from that little orange ball.”
