[Not sure what this refers to as February 7th is the date of the sighting Brian sent to me - John @ UFOINFO]
I am from Moreno Valley, CA. (15 miles from Murrieta and host to Marsh Airforce Base). I am writing because for the first time after years of casually reading about UFO's, I saw this article and besides the proximity of our cities. I also saw a similar object in 1985 approx:, I regrettably did not take note of the particulars of the incident, probably as a form of denial. This happened at night around 11pm. I have not read or heard of the description of the rectangle or pizza box shape object before this article.
I was driving a back road (Oleander Ave) that cuts right along side the south end of Marsh Airforce Base, between the 215 Freeway and Perris Blvd. I saw a huge object, hovering about 100 feet above and moving at an exceedingly slow pace. I stopped my car, step out to get a better look. It was rectangle shape (approx 20 x 50 yards) with small lights through out sporadically; along its side and bottom. It had a distinctive almost helicopter propeller blade hum, though more rhythmic and shallow. The object came to a standstill in front of where I was parked and a flood light came on and shown brightly in front of where I was parked, onto a building. After a few seconds it went off and the object proceeded directly onto March Airforce base and slowly hovered above it then turned left and went across the 215 Freeway heading west and it disappeared past some hills.
I assumed that it was some sort of military aircraft, though I have never seen anything like that before or since. The two thing I recall that were interestingly different were that I kept wanting other cars to happen by and no one drove through the road I was in during all the 5 plus minutes that this was happening. When the object banked left and over the freeway, I kept looking at the freeway for cars traveling north or south. During the whole incident no cars drove past the visible stretch of at least 1/2 mile of freeway. It was as if time had stood still. Not one car drove past on this relatively busy freeway. The other thing I found odd was thinking that this would generate some calls, or commotion that did not happen, apparently no one else saw this.
Thank you to the witness for a wonderful report.
