Dear Larry,

My wife and I had the chance to videotape a UFO on New Years eve 2000. (about 12:45 A.M.)

The video is not very clear however, I understand that with computer enhancement the image could be cleaned up.

We viewed this object in Orange County, California. It is also my understanding that a light source gives off a certain spectrum of heat and color.

We truly believe we encountered a UFO.

I will briefly describe what we saw: from where we were standing we were looking towards the Northwest and saw this bright orange lit up object, round in shape, sort of floating in the sky.

We both knew that it could not have been an airplane or a helicopter because of the way that it was flying and there was no indication of flashing lights usually attributed with aircraft wings.

We watched as on the bottom side of this object some brighter white sparks shooting down and a streak of white light trailed behind the sparks.

This occurred approximately every five seconds and the object was visible for about five minutes and then disappeared into the clouds.

We would like to send this video tape in for analysis

Thank you for your time and help

Todd Lawrence
