Santa Barbara is About 75 Miles Northwest of Los Angeles.

Date of Sighting: February 1, 2011
Time of Sighting: 12:34 AM PST
Location of Sighting: Santa Barbara, California (See Map)

Description: Listen to Interview With Witness (MP3)
The witness called 2 days after his sighting. His roommate was having a cigarette and became very excited as he saw extremely bright neon green lights to the east over the mountains. The lights lit up the entire sky. He called for his roommate (witness who reported sighting). The lights would fluctuate somewhat in brightness, but were fairly persistent. At one point a white light zigzagged around the sky. The lights finally dimmed and vanished. The entire sighting lasted about 10 minutes. The second witness (reporter of sighting) observed about the last 4 minutes of the sighting. No sound was heard.

Written Report Submitted by Witness: My roommate was outside the front of our house smoking a cigarette. I was in the kitchen and he called for me to run outside as if something was wrong. As I stepped outside I noticed an extremely bright, florescent, green, crimson, purple and a weird white light that somewhat zigzagged coming from behind the mountains. We recently had a big fire in 2010 that burned most of the surrounding area nearby so nobody has rebuilt or let alone even thought of moving back since. I have been to the back of the mountain and there is nothing there but wildlife, trees and a reservoir. As I looked at the lights Ii noticed that the first shade was almost a neon to dark green light that was at least 20X brighter than a normal spotlight. The purple light gave the same affect as the green light as did the crimson one, but the white light would often shoot from either left or right side in a zigzagged motion that was completely visible throughout. It lasted for a mere 5 to 10 minutes. The lights themselves were some of the brightest I have seen. There are no lights back in the canyon. Whatever this was was powerful enough to light up the entire hillside including the house which is located on the top of the hill. I am not sure what it was that we both saw, but to this day we both believe it was some sort of Extraterrestrial event. Now I may be wrong. It may or may not be easily explained, but why would it happen at 12:30 AM on such a random day and spot. It honestly makes no sense at all.
