Witness sees UFO every night over Bakersfield, CA

A witness says he sees a UFO in the sky above Rosedale, California every night.

Joseph Guzman contacted local CBS affiliate KBAK to share video of the UFO, and to seek help in identifying the aerial object.

“I can’t believe nobody else is seeing this,” says Guzman. He explains, “You can drive down Rosedale . . . anywhere in Bakersfield . . . just look up at 7:30, 7:45, towards Rosedale and you’ll see it.”

He describes that the UFO is an object that “moves and it glows.” He continues, “It’s got a green glow. And orange. It’s got two black dots, the top of it’s cut off.”

Others have reportedly witnessed the UFO with Guzman.

KBAK posted the UFO video on Facebook, which garnered several responses from viewers, including one from Frank Moore, president of the Antelope Valley Astronomy Club in Palmdale, CA. Moore suggests that what Guzman managed to capture on video is the planet Venus.

But Venus doesn’t have its top cut off, right?

Moore explains, “In some of his images, part of the disc appears to be cut off so that it appears flat on one side. Like the moon, Venus goes through phases wherein various amounts of the disc are illuminated by the sun at various times. Right now, the disc of Venus is illuminated 70.87% which coincides with some of the viewer’s images.”

Moore also offers Sirius as a possible identification for Guzman’s UFO. He explains that the apparent movement of the UFO could be explained by Sirius because, “as a variable multiple star, [it] often appears to twinkle or change colors.”

But Guzman isn’t buying it. He’s convinced that what he observes on a nightly basis is a craft of some sort. “I’m not saying it’s aliens, but I just want to know,” he says. But, if what he is observing is extraterrestrials in the sky, Guzman says, “Come on down. Let’s have a coffee or something.”

Rosedale is situated on the western outskirts of Bakersfield–a city that has been in the news in recent months because of its repeated UFO sightings.

  1. Why is this article so shallow, so thin on research?
    An easy check would be to go to Rosedale, have Joe Guzman point out where his anomaly is located, then hold up your Google Sky app, and see where Venus and Sirius are at that time. Is there a correlation, or is Joe’s sighting no where near those celestial bodies?
    Instead of proper investigative journalism, we only get dismissive comments from an old guard astronomer.

  2. Looking to Rosedale from Bakersfield would be looking west. On the day of this article (Apr. 22) Venus was visible in the evening looking west from Bakersfield. It was very bright at magnitude -3.9. It’s even brighter now (May 11) at magnitude -4.1 and yes, it’s still in the west 🙂 It will continue to get brighter until it peaks at magnitude -4.4 on July 21st.

  3. I’ve been taking stills of UFO’s every time the camera/tripod/lens is set up and have images of orbs, some imperfectly round with similar color to that which Mr. Guzman indicates. UFOs are here in great number-a fact that in the coming months will become perfectly clear. My astrophotographic imagery has appeared in books and their covers and both Astronomy magazines. Guzman’s image is not Venus. That should become clear after looking at the volume of imagery taken over a 7-month period.

    Many of the objects shown are extreme enlargements of images taken through very high resolution glass.

    The objects take whatever form they like: From fleshy figures and head shapes, to fake landing and FAA red/green wingtip light arrangements, to orbs of many colors. Since Ufology is full of de-focused objects of myriad shapes, I have attempted to bring more detail and number.

    If you scroll down on the Object index, you will see I have had the pleasure of a MUFON Field Investigator attend a typical night’s shoot at our home. They are multi-form and in numbers, as he discovered.


    In time, the reader will see for themselves an increasing number of sightings. But the viewer must first show up and look up with regularity.

    Apparently, whatever they are, they have waited long enough. It is not our call. Its ready-or-not time, whether our government likes it or not.

    My best to all, particularly first timers still feeling the elation of their first sighting. Guzman is dead on correct.
