Description: I was just into doing my early morning workout this morning at about 5:45. It was still dark, but the sky was getting light. Long streams of dark clouds were slowly moving across the sky. My house is high in the Hollywood Hills so I always notice the sky in the morning because it is usually beautiful. I was just beginning my second set of exercises when a twinkling caught my eye. At first I thought it was an optical illusion because cars coming down the hill reflect in my panoramic window. But no car was in sight. I went over to the window and the cluster of “Christmas Tree” twinkling lights hung there. At first they were in the center of a long stretch of dark clouds. I thought it might be a plane or a helicopter, but it didn’t budge from it’s spot. It just hung there and twinkled.
Not satisfied that this Christmas Tree wasn’t an illusion, I turned off my alarm, turned off my door light and stood outside. There it was, still hanging there in all it’s glory, twinkling away. The lights were all white. There were no colored ones, but they outlined the shape very clearly, and they were also within the triangle. I watched it another few minutes, went back inside and watched it a few minutes more.
Suddenly, I thought “I must wake up my husband, so he can see this too.” I ran into the bedroom, shook him awake (alarming him) and practically dragged him out of the bed. He grabbed his glasses and ran over to the window. It was still there, hovering, but as he adjusted his glasses, the shape slowly faded from view. I was disappointed, to say the least, that he didn’t really see it.
It seems, at least three other times, that I was the only person witnessing these “lights.”
I have seen at least five other “UFOs.” One when I was eight years old that was witnessed by my entire family. We lived in the country and across, the valley a short distance away, hovered a silver “telephone pole” in the afternoon sky. We watched it and speculated about it for about three hours. It finally flipped over and vanished.
One red, pulsating light in the sky was witnessed by my two sisters and I in Tampa, Florida one night in the late nineties.
In about 1994, I was flying over Lake Erie, just taking off from Cleveland when I looked out the left side of the plane and saw what I thought was another plane zooming up directly toward our plane. I panicked, but frozen. I watched this round object lit up with many lights zoom right over top of us. I looked to see if anyone else saw what I saw and it seemed that everyone on the plane was asleep with their mouths open. A weird experience.
Another experience was over the Hollywood Freeway near Barham Boulevard in the seventies. (I am pretty ancient now). I walked out on our terrace and an orange ball (kinda of like the 76 gas station ball) glide down over top the freeway. It was quite large and glowing inside. It traveled fast. Again, I screamed at my husband to come. He saw the very last of it as it traveled toward Hollywood. The whole experience lasted about 10 seconds.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
