Description (In Witness's Own Words): The pictures that I attached are spectacular. These pictures were taken over a 10 minute period. I was observing a con trail coming from the north over L.A. and headed south when this bright pulsating object crossed paths underneath it. The object pulsed brightly as it traveled at a high rate of speed. It was traveling from the east at a high rate of speed in a linear path and disappeared over the ocean. Our cliffside vantage point in Palos Verdes afforded us a wide view for many miles. My wife took the 10 photos in about 30 seconds with cannon 6 pixel w/ 12 time zoom. It was calm, the sun was behind us and a stranger also witnessed it.

Second Report by Witness (Via Phone Interview): The witnesses reported their sighting via phone call. The sighting had previously been reported to another UFO group. The witnesses had forgotten that they had also reported the sighting to this site. More details of the sighting were revealed in their second report. The witnesses stated that they were on a Sunday morning stroll and noticed a very shiny object over land heading towards the coast. The wife immediately grabbed her camera (Canon Powershot S3 digital camera with a maximum resolution of 8 megapixel) and took 10 photos in succession. The object was moving rapidly and was moving straight westward over the ocean. The object became smaller in the distance and the witnesses lost sight of it after about 90 seconds. The witnesses could not determine a shape. They thought that it was silver and "glistened" in the sunlight. No sound was heard. The speed was estimated at 1,200 mph.

Investigator's Notes: The witness sent 10 photos of the object. The photos are interesting and show a bright white object. I am unable to determine any further detail through photo analysis. The object appears circular and white. The whiteness could be due to the reflection of sunlight meaning that the object could be of metallic color. The speed of the object determined by the witnesses is an estimation and may not be accurate. The identity of this object is unknown. It could not be a celestial object because the object was moving rapidly. It likely was not a meteor because no tail or descending motion were observed. Satellites are not normally visible during daylight hours. Our group received another photo of an object that was sighted on March 31, 2007 in Redondo Beach. (Click here to read about this sighting.)
