Full Description of event/sighting: I have seen this object twice, almost exactly 1 year apart with one witness both times and on opposite sides of town.


I believe it was September 1998 It was a clear night with a slight wind. I was leaving my girlfriends house when I saw a neon orange sphere that was pitch black in the center. it was traveling north at no higher than 1000 ft. It was the size of a silver dollar held out at arms length, and made no sounds. It was moving very slowly when I saw a blue ball of light drop from the bottom of the craft about 50 or so feet and disappear. This went on about 4 more times. 5-10 seconds between each drop.

I had my lighter, so I flashed it a bunch of times and the craft stopped right above us. It dropped another blue ball of light and just sat there. My girlfriend was crying at this point. I flashed my lighter again and the most spectacular thing I have ever seen happened. It reacted by instantly jumping to the left, jumping to the right, changing shape from spherical to cylindrical, then with what sounded like a backfire, it shot off towards the south east at about 4000-5000 mph. The backfire sound woke her father up who asked us what the hell was that noise? we told him what we saw and he tried to tell us the same b.s. debunks say about the phoenix lights being military aircraft dropping flares. Whatever.


I also saw the same craft or a similar one with my mother a year later on the opposite end of Escondido. Around 11:30 p.m., We were out in the driveway smoking when we saw it. Again heading north, and dropping blue balls of lights. No spectacular exit this time, when I got my maglite out it performed a 90\' right turn into a cloud before i had a chance to hit it with the light.

I am very interested to know if you have received any similar reports regarding this type of craft. I welcome your comments!

Thank you.

Thank you to the witness for this report.
