Description: When I was a kid, around 9/10 years old, I saw a large, red, blinking sphere hovering about 75 feet above the Calle Morelos street sign for about 10 minutes before it followed a commercial jet flying east of it. The jet circled around and was chased westerly. After this, the object returned to the same spot above our house. Then a miramar jet chased it, out it went, just disappeared. I went hiding under the table as my teenaged brother and mom started panicking. Strange, I'll never forget it. The round UFO was about 50 feet in diameter.

My mom reports something was reported in the papers seen near highway 8 around this same time.
