Chad - California

Coast2CoastAM Either late April, or May 6th, 2007

Originally posted on Coast to Coast AM.

Last month (April 2007), my wife and I were on a walk when we noticed a very large, very strange "craft" in the sky. My wife took a picture with her cell phone camera (first photo below). A few days later a friend (and neighbor) lent me his camera and came with me to take photos of this "craft". We found it and took a number of very clear photos. Picture #4 is taken from right below this thing and I must give my friend credit as I was not brave enough to get close enough to take this picture myself!

The craft is almost completely silent and moves very smoothly. It usually moves slowly until it decides to take off. Then it moves VERY quickly and is out of sight in the blink of an eye. MORE THAN ANYTHING I simply want to understand what this is and why it is here?

We found your show with Google and I have listened for a few nights now. I have decided that if anyone can help me understand what this thing is, it is you and your audience. I must admit I am deeply unsettled by this thing. I have never seen anything like this in my life... Location: I would prefer not to say for now.

Thank you so much for posting my photos! I hope someone can help identify this... First of all, I see this thing VERY often. Since it first appeared, I have probably seen this thing maybe 8 different times since the first appearance. My friend and I went out the next day after I first saw it to get the photos, but it was not there. Then we tried again the next day, and we found it within like 30 minutes and followed it for a while. Most of the time I see it out of windows in my house, in the distance. but I would say almost half of the hikes I have gone on in my area, I have seen it very close. It is very easy to photograph and...many neighbors aside from my friend have also seen it.

It is almost totally silent but not quite. It makes kind of "crackling" noises. It's hard to describe them but they are only intermittent and not very loud, but you can notice them. Sometimes there is a very slight hum that sounds kind of mechanical, almost like when you are near very large power lines. But it is nothing loud like a jet engine, it is very quiet for the most part.

It moves almost like an insect. If you have ever seen a bug on a pond, it is kind of like that. It is VERY smooth and slow most of the time, but then every now and then it will rotate very quickly and go VERY fast into another direction, then stop, and repeat the process all over again. There is just something very unnatural about the way it moves.

Also, I have had maybe 4 headaches in the last week, and I am normally not the kind of person who really ever gets them. Also my wife has been tired and fatigued lately. She is about a month pregnant, and the doctor said fatigue is normal around this time, but I worry that it is a lot. Basically what I'm worried is that this "craft" has got some kind of radiation or something. Like I said, it sounds like power lines if you get close enough to it. Obviously I am worried for our health, especially with a baby on the way. I dont know if they are related, but again, this is why I really hope someone can answer these questions!

The work is still in progress to try to locate and identify Chad, in order to interview him.
Chad's captures location were found in March and appears to be NOT near Bakersfield.

Chad's spot

Ok guys, here's my theory about Chad:

What we know:
1. Chad is a hiker
2. Chad probably have a property (d) somewhere in the area
3. At least two of the photos were taken in a private property.
4. There NO WAY to hike near the Highway 17
5. However, there are a lot of nice place to hike at the West of Chad's location, and not too far (I calculate it in a diameter 2 miles away from Chad's location, in a straight line) which is VERY easy for someone who use to hike.
6. These places have lots of houses that haven't been explored by Frank and Tom; and i will surely not blame them for that, the place is really hard to explore with all these little roads, paths and houses everywhere.



6. The helicopter pad place is the highest place all around the area: if one want see something above the valley, it's THE place.
7. The only way to join this place by hiking is by the private dirty road between the restaurant and the Gleenwood drive:



8. We are sure that all these photos were NOT taken the same days and that there's two sequences:
  • The cellphone photo (n°1)
  • The others (n°2 to 6 [the "sky" one]

Then, to resume, my points are:

Chad lives somewhere at the West of the Highway, in the valley. He saw the drone most of the time from his house, and sometimes outside, hiking alone or with his one month pregnant wife.
We can hiking with a one month pregnant woman, I have done it myself with my wife many times, and for miles.

He knows that the only way to photograph the drone properly is to get the summit and also that THE ONLY WAY to get it is by the private dirty road.

Firstly, he went to the summit with his wife for a walk (and maybe for having lunch, like Numbers and I, passing by this private road that he knows very well, since he's a neighbor (and maybe a friend of the owner - remember that guy, even he's not the owner of this part, CAN use it), his wife took the picture with the cellphone and, SINCE THIS MOMENT, Chad knows that if he want to see the drone again and capture it, he have to get the summit.

Then, secondly, he returned to the summit another day with his friend and neighbor, here again, by the private dirty road, and took the rest of the pictures, beginning with the "Valley" one (n°2) almost at the same place as his wife and him saw it for the first time. The drone coming at this time closer, he didn't hesitate (and remember that he probably knows the owners of the privates) going on a private road to get better shoots.

So, is there a way that anyone can look at the two houses that Dave identified before at the curve Glenwood drive (from your map showing closed road hiking trail), Especially the house which Dave found was for sale and at a much reduced price in November. ?
