Sometime around 3 in the morning in Orange County, CA, on March 5th, a really strange object flew over the hill behind my house. Whatever it was, it
was near the flight path that aircraft taking off from LAX follow. I seriously doubt it was a conventional aircraft, however, because it was
EXTREMELY bright-- I happened to be facing a mirror at the time, and suddenly there was a bright sort of incandescent colored flash (in the mirror)
and I saw a strange spherical light streak by window. (I saw the reflection of the object in the mirror, I didn't look directly out the window at
the object.) Oddly enough, my cat was sitting next to me on the bed and suddenly tensed up and peered at the mirror, so I know he saw it too. I
wrote the whole thing off as a huge meteor/strange reflection of car headlights/neighbor playing with a flashlight, but the next night, at the same
time, I saw something eerily similar.
On March 6th, I decided to leave my window blinds totally open, so I'd have a decent sized view of the northern sky as I slept. I just happened to
take a cursory look outside before nodding off, and suddenly this strange sort of 2 dimensional glowing disc flew by. (It genuinely appeared two
dimensional, it didn't look like any type of stereotypical UFO I'm aware of, but I'm certainly no expert.) The disc was slightly brighter in the
center, and from my perspective appeared to be about the size of a small full moon. This time, I got a little creeped out because I could clearly see
that there were no clouds in the sky (I could see the stars), all the other windows in the room had their blinds shut tight, and no cars had passed
by. I thought it looked a bit like a searchlight reflecting off clouds, but it was the color of an incandescent bulb, there were no clouds, and it
never came back. I even searched around the perimeter of the house to see if someone outside had simply cast a flashlight beam into the sky, but
there was no one around.
The thing that really sticks in my mind about the second sighting was the way the object moved. It reminded me of a cockroach scurrying across the
floor when the lights are turned on. It moved across the sky very quickly (I'm not sure I'd say impossibly fast, though much faster than I've ever
seen an aircraft move) and suddenly disappeared without a trace. I think it was silent, but I was indoors watching through a window, so its hard to
say if it made any noise outside. I watched the sky for maybe an hour after that, and nothing similar ever appeared. I've seen meteors, airplanes,
helicopters, searchlights and just about everything else out that window at some time or other, and I've never seen anything quite like what I
Oddly enough, NASA supposedly lost a climate satellite in the Pacific just a few days before, so I'm curious if the object is related somehow.
