LIghts on Amboy Road in California old Route 66

My husband was traveling east bound on National Trails Highway which runs parallel to I-40. This is a segment of old Route 66. The freeway is not close to the road in all areas and can only be seen in a few spots. The area of the sighting was not near the freeway. This road is very dark at night and mostly abandoned. There are a few people who live in some settlements along the way such as Cadiz but for the most part it is a very desolate place with just a few mostly abandoned settlements here and there. We have traveled this road often at both day and night times.
As pretty much a non-believer in anything UFO-related or paranormal, he was surprised to see lights off to his left where he knew nothing should be. He observed this object for about 45 seconds flying next to him. His first thought was that it was a helicopter but realized that at less than 1/4 mile away, he should be able to hear its sound. It was quiet and he had the truck windows open. The light dashed in front of him briefly and then flew upwards in a backward motion out of sight. It moved in a manner and speed that did not match anything like planes or helicopters we know about.
He managed to take some pictures. Because there was no time to adjust the lens, these came out like time lapse photos with trails of light. The UFO looks like a mangled mass of yellow-white neon tubing in some pics. In one pic, it looks like a scribble of light. In this picture a distant oncoming car is visible plus the image of a speed limit sign on the other side of the road that also shows a multiple trailing image. He took about 8 pictures and the contrast between the light and the darkness of the area is immense.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
