Description: I wanted to report a UFO sighting last night (1/11/2014) at 9:40 PM in Cabo San Lucas. My husband and I were eating dinner outside when we noticed a very bright, large, orange circular orb, due south of Capella Pedregal on the southern tip of the Baja, just west of the arch.
We watched the orb for approximately two minutes moving very slowly when we started to discuss the fact that it did not look like an airplane, in movement or color, and how there is nothing out in the Pacific south of Cabo where a small plane would be going anyway.
Suddenly the light started descending from the sky into the ocean. After being very high up in the sky for the few minutes we watched it, the light suddenly descended in approximately 20 seconds where it appeared to hit the ocean, flicker briefly and then disappear.
It did not appear that anyone else at the restaurant was paying attention, although there were many people eating.
You mention on your blog that you would like reports so here is mine! My husband is a very skeptical engineer and neither of us have ever seen anything like this in our lives.
I would like to do some research and find out if there is a missing plane, but I am not even sure where to start with that.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting. Be detailed in your description. You may also use our report form to report your sighting. Comments will only be published if they are in "good taste" and not inflammatory. Also the name that you list in the comment will be posted. Use abbreviations or aliases if you don't want your name listed.
I have said it before and I will say it again. These sound like Chinese lanterns. If they all move in the same direction, are slow, burn out one by one and are orange spheres, my bet is on lanterns. Flickering at the end could easily be the flame hitting the water.
My husband and I saw 4 orange-brown colored lights (orbs) at roughly the time you saw the one. We were standing at an overlook in the Pedregal neighborhood looking westward (with the beach in the near distance below us).
We saw four orange-brown lights moving together horizontally in two sets of two over the ocean. They moved in a northeast to southwest direction together then really rapidly moved away from us (west) appearing to almost evaporate, but still at the same level (they didn’t descend). We only saw them for less than a minute. They weren’t helicopters or planes (no flashing lights) or flares. The lights were too steady and moved too horizontally together. They moved away from us (so they made a perpendicular move from the direction they were going) really rapidly.
