Full Description of event/sighting: Hi Brian, I had a long day, having attended a Federal Budgeting course in San Diego, then afterward going to the beach at Del Mar, CA for some surf fishing. I arrived at my home in San Marcos about 2100 hrs. After cleaning my fish and showering, I was pretty tired. I went out to my covered driveway (carport) for a smoke, and a look at the night sky. I looked north, thinking about my recent saucer sighting and wondering what it's all about. In the near distance, at no more that a couple hundred feet, I saw a faintly visible moving object, that flitted from side to side. Whatever it was, it reflected light from the streetlights. It's side to side movement was so quick, I couldn't tell if it was one object or two. The object then zipped to directly over my neighbors house across the street. By this time, I was certain I'd never seen anything like it. It continued to move side to side, in a space of approximately 50 feet. It then stopped and I observed it more clearly.

It may have had big "eyes" and wing-like appendages, and was probably 2 to 3 feet in width. It remained still and I could see wavering reflections from it's "wings" They were not beating like a birds, but showed shimmering reflections from the streetlights. I felt the hair on my head rise all the way down my back to my ankles! It appeared to be regarding me, as I smoked my cigarette. I felt threatened, and said out loud, "I see you !" Then it went from stationary to out of sight, right over my head in an instant. I came out from under my covered carport, and turned to follow it's movement. Immediately, it zipped into view directly above my head, obviously studying me! I could see really weird large and intensely dark "eyes". It seemed surprised by my looking right at it. It didn't like being seen. My apprehension rose even higher. It turned away and disappeared like a shot.

It had a birdlike shape, but was thicker. My impression was of reflections of the streetlights on wing-like appendages, and big dark eyes. !

It wasn't a bird, bat or any familiar nocturnal creature. It's movements did not seem explicable in comparison to any creature that fly's by beating it's wings. The hills and mountains are so rugged and inaccessible near my home, that anything could remain hidden and make nighttime forays at will.

Thank you to the witness for the unusual report.
