Orange tends to relate to location. Light pollution and cloud cover and those things, but sometimes it just doesn't make sense. I'm pretty sure
what I'm seeing is Jupiter, or a planet of any sort. It's so stationary that I seriously doubt it's anything from elsewhere. Since apparently the
ISS is so rare to catch There's no way that's what it is, and I KNOW it isn't a star because nothing about it says it's a star.
The only time i ever saw anything in this county was when I lived in Brea, must've been...2003? maybe 2004? On top of the hill at State College and
Bastanchury if you know where that is. This thing moved up, down, side to side, diagonal all sorts of ways and changed colors 4 or 5 times while
visible. It would disappar for a few seconds, re-appear in the same spot th the same color then make a strange shift in direction while changing
colors. It was a really heavy air traffic night and it would've been near LAX from what we could tell. There was about 6 of us all watching it. It
was strange that at such a distance all of us caught it at relatively the same time.
Yea thats around my school I believe. Isnt Fullerton airport around there also? when I go up to riverside around march ARB there sure are some strange
lights flying around there at night. I've always read stories and seen shows about the secrets at march in the mid 20th century makes you think.
Although I think they are just optical illusions and they are fighter jets. Hard to tell because its a bright light (probably flying towards me so
little or no movement) then it would turn and dull out.
Well I'm off to sleep, catch up with you on this thread tomorrow! Have good night everyone
Yeah, Fullerton airport is about, ehhh 5 miles from there?
Now I'm right near John Wayne, so having lived near airports for most of my life I have a good idea of normal flight patterns as opposed to
crazy-weird flight patterns. Hopefully some more people pick up on this thread tomorrow! I'd like to see some more opinions for sure.
I live in Orange County, too. I recommend going to the areas of Orange County which have little light pollution, such as Laguna Beach, Dana Point, San
Clemente, etc. Mainly the southern coastal Orange County areas are the best areas to watch the skies.
The problem with the coastal areas in Orange County and LA for that matter, too many planes shooting out over the ocean to turn around to go east
I lived in Anaheim for many years until I sold the house to move further east (Riverside Area). I know spend alot of my time in the desert, I.e.,
Barstow area, shooting, wheelin and viewing the stars. The best skies closest to Orange County are 3 hours east; Julian, or Just east of Barstow Area
half way between Needles.
Most times in the desert it is Mag 6.5+. No better way to spot than under skies like that.
Yo! Do you work at the Newland St. The Garfield the Downtown or the Brookhurst Starbux? There are soooooooo many. Any way, scoot on down to crystal
cove after the moon sets. You know down PCH past Corona Del Mar, the UFO's love it out there and its dark dark dark. Peace, and I'll be at Garfield
to get a Venti Mocha at 8:30.
