Did a UFO crash near Fresno over the weekend?

There's been a few stories circulating over the last few days of a reported UFO crashing in the mountains north of Fresno and that it was some sort of top secret military craft and it was somehow linked to a rumored underground base underneath the Fresno Air National Guard base at Fresno Yosemite International airport that is said to connect to NORAD in Colorado.

Jeffrey Gonzalez of the Sanger Paranormal Society and a state director for MUFON (the Mutual UFO Network) was able to shoot some video of what he claims to be the mysterious craft in question. In the video below you can see several lights in a triangular formation with a flashing strobe in the middle (an anti-collision light found on most aircraft?). Unfortunately it's hard to make out what the object is and there's nothing in the shot to compare it too for size reference.

Not really sure what to make of on this story. There's no mention of it on the MUFON site nor it's sightings database. Nor was there any mention of it on the National UFO Reporting Center. There's only mention of this story on a few blogs of the story and a YouTube video.

I'm doing a bit of research myself on this story. I've already contacted the California State Director of MUFON to hear what they have to say. I have several contacts who have worked at the Air National Guard base over the years and I want to see if they have ever heard of any rumors of an underground base.

This is one of those stories that's too interesting to dismiss too quickly and I'll post updates as I get them.

I live in Madera County, just a few miles from Fresno. There has been no word of this event on any local media. I think it's a hoax.

I saw something similar on June 4, 2009 @ 1:10am. I was driving south through Strathmore (near Lemoore)on Hi41. The lights didn't meet FAA specs, but there was nothing unearthly about them.
