"Subscribers have sent us this photo and are asking wHAT the lights in the sky over 99 ARE. No se. We don’t know either. What’S youR thoughts?" - @916timesofficial via Instagram.

A bizarre unexplained image from a Sacramento resident shows four faint yet unmistakably glowing white lights looming in the skies above Highway 99, leaving motorists below puzzled. These flying apparitions do not appear to be registered on any public flight radar systems that monitor commercial, private, and some government flights. Adding to the mystery, the circulation of this image has unveiled countless local reports of unexplained phenomena and speculation of clandestine government surveillance. Community members have voiced their accounts of witnessing these eerie lights in the sky regularly, but without any agencies claiming these flights, residents are left with no explanation and can only speculate on the unsettling possibilities.

As conversations unfold within the Sacramento community, a myriad of theories has emerged to explain the source of these puzzling reoccurring lights. Some locals lean towards the belief that these luminous displays may be linked to covert government or military operations, suggesting the possibility of undisclosed agencies or clandestine drone activities. Conversely, the more speculative notions point toward the extraterrestrial, with discussions veering into the realm of UFOs and potential alien visitations. The persistent nature of these sightings only fuels the debate, leaving Sacramento residents captivated by the mysterious and unexplained celestial phenomena illuminating their night skies.

Check out some of these fascinating and mystery-compelling theories shared by local Instagram users:

-"That's nothing. Drive past Yolo bypass Bridge toward Frisco. Right before Davis always a rocket landing or whatever it is. Blue flames.."

-"The UFOs fly over Rancho Seco off 99 to check on the nuclear waste that is stored there every so often."
  • Take note of this mention of "Rancho Seco", a public recreational area about 40 miles from downtown Sacramento.

-"Same here, I've seen those lights in the sky for at least 10 years."

-"THERE is a drone base in Manteca and they constantly do flight operations from there to Galt. The new age military getting training."

-"Been crazy amounts of 'drones' all kinds of shapes and sizes, out lately."
-"Have you noticed they’re usually in the same spots too?"
-"YES, They will be hovering over specific houses and I even saw one somewhat land on a cellphone tower…CHP? Or other government maybe?"

-"I agree with drones, all this new technology of how the state scans our homes neighborhoods to see who’s doing/growing or making meth labs etc.. also Rancho Seco SMUDs polluted area.."

Here we see again a suspicious reference to Rancho Seco, the seemingly innocent public recreational area owned by Sacramento Municipal Utilities District (SMUD). Beyond its advertised activities of camping, fishing, hiking, and water rafting, lurks a forgotten secret—shrouded in silence, unspoken, and undoubtedly cloaked in mystery. This seemingly family-friendly public recreation area was once home to a nuclear power plant and is ensnared in enough controversy to warrant a dedicated investigative article. Delve into the linked article below to unravel the unsettling and obscured history lurking within the depths of Rancho Seco, a puzzle begging to be uncovered.

We strongly urge any onlookers of unexplained aerial phenomena to calmly follow the Rare Files team's essential 4 R's:

  1. Remain in cover - Unknown entities can be hostile or surveilling you. Find safety in shelter and concealment. Thermal cameras only read surface temperature, and cannot see through a car's windows or doors. However, the engine heat will indicate how recently the car has been moved.

  2. Record - Use your camera to capture evidence. Government agencies will only be held accountable if they know the people are watching back. Multiple photos can eliminate possibilities of lens flares and other invalidations. Video helps observers reference time, space, and audio.

  3. Research - Websites like track private, commercial, and some government flights and provide aircraft and travel information. Determine if the object can be explained by logical means.

  4. Report - Thousands of unexplained phenomena have gone undocumented, hindering our understanding of the true world around us. It is our civil duty to record and report any possibly dangerous and/or immoral unexplained activities or entities.
