UFO sightings were reported across California early New Year’s morning, though federal authorities apparently saw no "unusual flight activity" above the Golden State. People in North Carolina also reported sightings.

"I seen like six bright orange colored lights," Kaye Pinlac of Stockton told local ABC News affiliate News 10. "They were almost like in a diamond or triangle shape. It was weird. And so they started just separating."

"There was no sound, that's the funny thing. Just this big illuminated form," added Terry and Hans Mauth of Auburn, Calif.

"It was too huge to be a birthday balloon or something like that," Terry Mauth added. "And it moved too quickly."

Videos of the mysterious lights began appearing on YouTube shortly after they were first spotted.

"Whatever it was moved up and to the left," Steven Brown of Sacramento told News 10. "It hovered there for probably about 60 seconds, then it took off at a high rate of speed."

In 2008, similar sightings over the Sacramento Valley ended up being nothing more than an airplane with an electric sign beneath one its wings, while in 2009, other UFO sightings were attributed to arcing power lines near Placerville, Calif., KPLC-TV reported.

When asked about the lights observed overhead early Wednesday morning, FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said there was no unusual flight activity called in by any pilots or air traffic controllers, News 10 reported.

California residents weren’t the only one seeing bright lights in the skies overhead early New Year’s morning.

Residents in North Carolina, both Greensboro and Raleigh, also reported seeing glowing objects in the sky, MyFox8.com reported.

There has yet to be an explanation for the apparent North Carolina UFO sightings.
