Sighting Reports 2009

Man Sees Blinking Red Light With Rotating Line of White Lights Below it

Date: January 13, 2009
Time: 6:30 PM PST
Location: Costa Mesa, California

Description: I saw some very strange lights in the sky a couple nights ago. I live in Costa Mesa which is located in Orange County California. I live near John Wayne Airport in southern California. and I grew up near El Toro Marine Base. I know what airliner and fighter jet lights look like. What I saw last night was neither and they definitely weren't flares. I was standing on my patio talking to a friend over the phone when suddenly I saw some strange lights in the sky to the north. I did not see an actual craft only the lights. There was a blinking red light on the top. Beneath the red light there was a straight row of about 8 to 10 white lights which also seemed to blink faintly, and appeared to be rotating in a circle around whatever this thing was. I watched it for about 10 to 15 seconds as it began to move north. It was too fast to be an airliner or a blimp. It made no sound and disappeared into the horizon.

Second Report by Witness: I have been obsessed over this for the last week, as I have no idea what I saw. I can't tell you how much it's bothering me. However, I now have 3 confirmed sightings of the same thing I saw. One was on the same night and at the same time as my sighting. The 2 others saw it on Thursday the 15th. They saw the same thing in the same location. There is definitely something strange up there in the sky.

Note: The witness seems credible and provided a good summary of his observations. I have no explanation for what he sighted. The witness says in his second report above that others witnessed the lights that he saw. (Two of the other sightings were two days later.)
