Description: Listen to Recording of Witness Report (MP3)
The witness reported his sighting by leaving a voice-mail message. He stated his family and neighbors saw a bright blue object move rapidly west-northwest out over the Pacific Ocean. He estimated that the object was moving at 2,500 knots and was at a height of 60,000 Feet. He stated that the light would go off and then come back on. This cycle was repeated a few times. The object emitted no sound and abruptly changed direction a few times. The witness said that he is a pilot and that he had no explanation for this object.

Comments: The witness is probably a good observer considering that he is a pilot. However, estimating speed and height is nearly impossible without some sort of reference point (e.g. cloud or another aircraft of a known height, speed, and size). I have no explanation for this sighting.
