10 Miles South Of Ft. Hunter Liggett Army Base, Jolon, CA (Saucer)

Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1

Full Description of event/sighting: At the time of the sighting my ex husband and I were living in the hills of the Central California coastal mountain range. My husband had mentioned that, the night before, he had seen a strange light on the horizon in the direction of the army base, and decided to go out on the next night and try to see if it came back. After being outside about 1/2 hour, he called me outside and handed me binoculars.
I saw what can only be described as a classic saucer....grey, like two inverted saucers stuck together, and a row of lights around the middle. The lights blinked slowly off and on, and they were red, green or blue, and white. This thing hovered low on the horizon, then shot off to the left in the blink of an eye and hovered there, then shot back and hovered...then turned on it's side, did some weird stuff (tip on it's side, then right itself again), and finally after about 5 minutes it slowly descended below the horizon.
Ft. Hunter Liggett Army base is an experimental testing base. I worked there for three years previously, and had seen things like the apache helicopters hovering still while shooting javelin missiles and whatnot, and this thing was not at all like anything I had previously seen on that base.
I thought at the time that the army had a working flying saucer and was testing it. But I don't know, of course, and wasn't working there at the time of the sighting.
I have looked on the net and saw that there is an abduction story from a soldier stationed there in the late 60s. It doesn't surprise me one bit.
Thank you to the witness for the really interesting sighting report.
