It was nearly late afternoon , clear sky ,early fall but still warm , I think it was,oct/nov.my friend and I was sitting out in lawn recliners waiting on his sis to bring us iced teas , and it suddenly appeared over the desert hill NE like it came fromthe town Mojave about 12 mls. From us it made no noise at all it was ginormous! Like a planet fell from the sky , by then all three of us were seeing it , and still no noise it hovered over us for a good five minutes then shot straight up and was gone in a count of three. My friends said afterwards that they've seen a cigar shaped one in the area yrs ago but not one like this.This was in the back yard you could say by the Edwards AirForce base and the dry lake bed , don't know if anyone else saw it then, but I would like to know. I dont know the county of Lancaster, Ca. so I just picked one sorry.
