Hello to everyone, this is my first post here. I usually hang out on another well known conspiracy site, that as of late isn't big on discussing
UFO's, but rather political and economical issues. I was asked by a user on that site to post my story with pictures on this website, for better
evaluation and opinions.
Basically, on Tuesday night, March 17th, we had a UFO fairly close by and low in altitude hovering over my home and neighborhood for over 20 minutes.
That night as well, we had a 3 minute window from 7:48 p.m. to 7:51 p.m. to see the space shuttle and ISS. I reminded my 10 year old daughter of this,
but got caught up in getting dinner ready that we forgot to run outside to look for it. At about 7:59 p.m., my neighbor's son came running over and
knocked on our door to come see the UFO.
My neighbor and her two boys are sky watchers, as it is a nightly hobby to star gaze. She had her camera out on a tripod to snap shots of her boys.
Before I ran outside to see the UFo, she had been watching it hover over our houses (general area, but most likely due to altitude and size, was
obviously further). She snapped over 60 pictures of this thing. It hovered in a stationary position forever and when it moved, it moved erratically.
When I ran outside to view it, it was hovering directly across the street from my house and appeared like a glowing light craft. By this point, things
got really interesting because we saw military helicopters, along with police birds, scrambling to find this object. Some of the helicopters had
search lights on. Before this craft vanished, it slowly moved westward toward the ocean and simple vanished.
I live a few miles from the LB airport and directly under the landing path for the commercial flights and for 45 minutes to an hour after this thing
disappeared, they diverted air traffic around the search area. We watched these helicopters going nuts trying to find this thing. Toward the end of
the hour, almost 9 p.m., the helicopters flew towards Huntington Beach/Orange County, following something.
Other interesting tidbits, the UFO appeared right after sunset over a densely populated area very close to commercial flight path. At first it looked
just like any other, plane coming in for a landing when you see the headlights, except for the thing hovered.
Obviously, there is more detail that i can provide as to why this was so strange, but then this would be a 10 page post.
On the other site, there are two threads on this sighting posted by me, 7 and 11 pages respectively with oohs and ahhs and calls of BS. I don't
profess this to be "alien", but certainly unusual. If it were a top secret military craft, why would they chase it?
I also live near the Los Alamitos Joint Training base and the Naval Weapons Station in Seal Beach.
Here is the links for the pics, they kind of speak for themselves:

This is a link by a poster on the other site when he animated some of the pictures:
Also, my neighbor who took the pictures and should take credit for the whole event being documented, posted her story on MUFON and she posted as well
o the other site's threads as well She gave a lot more detail and I can copy and paste her statement in this thread, if anyone is interested.
