Mission Bay, San Diego, CA Oval Shaped Object Lifted Off The Water

Date: April 28, 2005

Hi Brian,

Just dropping a line to let you know I had a sighting on Thursday, 4-28-05 at 7:05 PM.

I was sitting on the 10th floor of a high-rise and looking towards Mission Bay here in San Diego, CA waiting to take some sunset pictures. As I shifted my eyes towards the bay, an oval shaped object lifted off the water and started coming directly at me. I watched it rise , getting larger and larger as it flew directly over the building. It was absolutely silent! It took 5 seconds to traverse the 2 miles from the bay to the building. When over the building I could see a 5 sided black area on the underside shaped like a baseball plate. I also took finger measurements and calculated its size and speed. At 0.5 inches over the bay, to 5.0 inches over the building, that calculates to 176 feet in diameter.

Traveling the 2 miles in 5 seconds comes out to 1,440 MPH. The 10th floor is 100 feet above ground level, and the street is 425 feet above sea level, for a total of 525 feet. It also had to clear the microwave antenna on the roof, so it could have been at 50 feet or so above the antenna when it passed over. An awe inspiring sight. Unfortunately I couldn't get my camera ready soon enough, plus I would have missed the sighting of a lifetime. As long as it remains in my mind, that's all I care about.

Have a GREAT DAY. I'll let you know if it happens again.


Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
