Date of Sighting: August 15, 2008
Time of Sighting: Few Minutes Before 2 AM PDT
Date Sighting Reported: August 15, 2008
Duration of Sighting: Unknown
Location of Sighting: Redondo Beach, California (See Map)
Latitude: 33.83 Degrees North
Longitude: 118.4 Degrees West

Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Skies Were Clear & Visibility Was 10 Miles at Nearby Los Angeles Airport. The Brightened Photos Reveal Some Clouds. The Height of These Clouds is Not Known.

Description: Let me know what you think. I tracked these lights going across Pacific Ocean on August 15, 2008 about 2:00 AM. I have several pictures.

Comments: Little is known about the above two pictures. Did the witness see the lights or later discover them in a photo? I have posed this question to the witness. The photos were taken with a high quality digital camera (Nikon D80, 10.2 mega-pixel with a single lens reflex.) My initial impression is that the lights are sky reflections of the ground lights. (See comments received from photo analyst below.) The lights were not visible until the photos were brightened with photo editing software. Updates will be posted.

Photo Analysis: Hi Bill, I examined the recent photo you posted on your web site and made some photo shop enhancements. (See attached enhanced image.) I made duplicate copies and rotated one image both vertically and horizontally. I took that inverted image and overlaid it over the original in close proximity to the objects of interest. You indicated a possibility of lens refraction. Well, the results are conclusive that the blue colored lights are the results of a lens refraction. Note the inverted street light pattern matches the UFO cluster precisely. The photographer is either mistaken about this observation or has perpetrated a hoax.
