Location of Sighting: Tustin, California
Date of Sighting: August 3, 2017
Time of Sighting: 11:05 PM PDT
Description: I saw a bright object High in the northern sky randomly blinking. Some blinks were stronger than others. One blink was very strong. The object appeared to be moving in a slow circle and at one point the light changed to an orange hue and then a greenish hue. I ran into my shop and brought up flight radar24 on the computer and I didn’t see any planes in that area. I went back outside just in time to see it vanish toward the northeast at a moderate rate. I am a pilot and I watch airplanes at night flying into and out of LAX and SNA. This was something out of the ordinary!
Addition to Report From Witness: Yes! Something else is interesting about that night. Flightradar24 showed a NASA Gulfstream 3 flying back and forth between Costa Mesa and just east of Edward’s AFB at 38,000 feet. He made a lot of laps perhaps trying to spot something?? Or am I listening to too much George Noory!Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
