Not really sure what to make of these lights that were filmed over Bakersfield lately. I'm going to rule out the typical Chinese Lantern sightings as the objects don't drift like the lanterns normally do, and the color of light is different than what the lanterns usually are.

I was reading about this on the Above Top Secret forums and someone suggested radio controlled airplanes. This could be a possibility, but given the distance from the camera to the lights, both the planes and source of lights would have to be rather large. I'm going to dismiss the idea of some sort of experimental military aircraft. The nearest air base would be Edwards, but I really doubt they would be testing experimental aircraft over Bakersfield (though a F-117 did crash nearby in the 1980's so I wouldn't rule it out completely). As of right now, unless more video surfaces, I'm going to have to say these are nothing more than radio controlled airplanes doing some night flying.
