Time of Sighting: 4 PM PST
Location of Sighting: Oceanside, California

Description: I was outside in my patio taking pictures of unusual cloud formations when I looked to the south where there were no clouds and noticed what looked like a white line all by itself. It was pretty high up. Because it didn't move at all, I started taking pictures of it. At one time it seemed to change shape and became round then back to the white line. There was no reflection off of it. As I was taking the pictures ,which was several minutes, the batteries in my camera went dead. I raced back into the house to get more and when I got back outside, it was gone completely. I then took the camera in the house and downloaded the pictures on my computer. I tried to zoom in on the object as much as I could without distorting it too much. What I noticed on one of the pictures was that there appeared to be 3 black dots on the top of it and what looked like fainter ones on the bottom. The shape of it looks to be cigar shaped or maybe it was the angle it was in the sky. I will try to send you the one picture that shows this detail. I tried to make the picture larger and could not, so it is small.

Note: The top photo does show the black dots mentioned by the witness. The appearance of this object is quite unusual and I don't have an immediate explanation. The apparent "shape shifting" in the second photo could be due to the fact that the object rotated rather changed shape. (The witness mentions this possibility.)
