"...It was very slow and flying very low (500' - 1000').
I thought it might be a blimp, but it had no markings as most blimps do.
The shape appeared to be like an over inflated football.
The bottom half appeared to be illuminated with a white light.
There was a small solid green marker light at each end, and a flashing red light at the top center.
There were other aircraft visible at the same time. I could see what appeared to be a helicopter traveling west and south of it. Another helicopter
traveling west and north of it.
It was later trailed by a prop driven plane.
If it was a blimp, then why didn't it have a gondola?
If it was extraterrestrial, then why did it have the marker lights?
I watched it for about 15 minutes until it traveled west and out of site behind a tree line.
It appeared to be traveling parallel and just north of the interstate 10 freeway in Fontana, CA."

"I saw a shadow on the ground from the sky, sometimes aircraft will pass through the sun at just the right angle and you can see the shadow real quick
on the ground, this was the same case except I couldnt hear anything. Its been very overcast over here the last couple days, the clouds have been
moving in and out of the suns way all day today.
...I was able to see a blimp or cigar like shape, it was more shaped like a cigar, or a submarine. It wasnt moving very fast, maybe....150MPH. Thats
just a guess, its hard to tell when its so high. Im going to also guess that it was three quarters of a mile high, It moved in and out of the clouds,
no unusual movments. No visual markings, possibly round windows or portholes on the side. maybe 10-15.
...It finally vanished when it hovered and went straight up into the air, not like a fighter jet with the nose pointed up, this was like a helecopter
taking off from the ground. It just kept going up and up and then once it went through the clouds, I couldnt see it anymore. Im not going to suggest
that it was Extraterrestrial, but I will say that it wasnt normal at all. To low to be a test aircraft, I could see it, and It didnt move fast at all
like modern technology. It acted just like a blimp, but im 100% sure it wasnt."

"I was walking east when I looked straight ahead about 100 feet up in the air and one block away from where I was standing- a silver saucer sort of
fat with red, blue, yellow lights all around the rim. I have always had an interest in UFO's and it happened on a day when I was not looking for one.
It was still day light. A weird sense of calmness came over me. As I turned to look for other witnesses, I didn't find not one person. It was very
strange. Just me and my dog. I stopped and stared at it for at least two minutes which is a long time then suddenly (by the way no noise, it was just
hoovering so still) the brightest, whitest light came out from the bottom of it, strectching straight down perfectly. I've never seen light like that.
It slowly went straight down and obviously landed on someones yard as it was a typical neighborhood..." This report also describes a Vancouver
sighting of a silver craft, seen from inside a passenger flight (albeit a somewhat fanciful description from the person reporting sighting). Vancouver
is listed as a location in Aeroscraft's website: www.aeroscraft.com...

"Ive seen this before in my area 10+ times since March of 2012, but last night was the closest Ive ever seen it. I was able to zoom in and take a
photo with my iPhone. The object on camera looks like a massive glowing blimp and is non-symmetrical. There is a disc with a bottom piece coming out
that looks like the rudder of a boat that points at a diagonal down to the ground..."

"I was driving out of my complex, which is located high up in the hills of La Mesa, when I spotted an object in the SW skies. I see planes coming in
all the time, and this was no plane. It was just hovering above the tree tops in the distance. I pulled my car over to try and get a better look and
it started to move VERY SLOWLY. Twice it kind of rotated to a 45 degree angle, hovered like that, then it straightened back out and kept up it's
crawling pace. It was not shaped like a plane, but rather like a blimp or a cigar. It was so far away I was having a hard time watching it, really.
That being said, the planes that were coming in, and there were at least four that passed as I watched, were much closer in proximity to me, and this
object at it's far-off distance appeared to be the same size. So it must have been huge.....Now, it could very well have been a blimp, I have no clue,
but do blimps rotate at 45 degree angles and hover? I would like to know this... and I looked on the internet to see if I could find anything about
blimps flying over San Diego and I couldn't find anything. This is my second sighting of something unusual in exactly 7 days... I have never seen a
UFO, now I have seen TWO in just a week..."

Location on map of this weird (probably hoaxed?) sighting: /m6qa2jb
I just realized I did not include the respective counties of the above sightings. The location information is in each link, if followed. Apologies
that I did not include in the post, for ease of reading. However, here is a link to a map of California counties I was using to search the 3
I was using the map of counties to identify areas near the 3 southern
California locations listed by World Aeros website in their "locations" page. The 3 databases I pulled from are Mufon, Nuforc, and one I found today,
SightingsReport, which appears to be an amalgamation of sightings databases. It is very easy to use.
This is my first thread. I hope you found it interesting, and entertaining. I hope it sparks some interest in those of our ATS community who enjoy
perusing the UFO-sightings sites. Perhaps more examples will be posted here, of sightings which fit the M.O. of our silver blimp (which may have
paint, as you can see by searching "aeroscraft" images on a search engine).
In closing, here are the 3 UFO-sightings report websites, for convenience:
I entered "Montebello, CA, blimp" for example
This is where county map came in handy
If you find a user-friendly way to search here, please let me know.
Thank you for spending some of your time here.
