Location of Sighting: La Quinta, California
Date of Sighting: July 29, 2019
Time of Sighting: About 3:30 PM PDT
Description: I was in my swimming pool, doing a backstroke, and looked at an “area” of sky between the horizon and zenith to the East. I saw a white object that I took for a plane or bi-plane as I saw no wings flapping, but it certainly looked as if it had bi-wings and was at an altitude where I have seen other planes, flew from the East to the “area.” It seemed
to stop and hover like a drone, and then looked like it was doing aerobatics like loops and figure 8’s, all in that same “area.” As I watched, a flock of about a dozen white birds flew from the West and seemingly, as high as this object was in the sky, and right towards
it. The birds were in an arrow formation as they flew right to the object that was still doing its contortions in the “area”. The birds then flew off together, hardly losing formation, to the Southeast. The object then stopped, hovered, and flew back to the East. I was just going to get my phone to video it when they dispersed. It was incredible.
