Message: Okay, let me start out by saying I am a true non-believer in UFO’s, but last night i experienced something I never thought I would. I live in Hermosa Beach, CA and as i was laying in bed awake last night around 12:45 am i heard a few helicopters circling around above, and didn’t think anything of it, until I heard them circling for a few minutes.
I peered through my shades and looked out in the sky to see if i could see them. I saw something, and rubbed my eyes for 3 minutes wondering what the hell it was. I was looking for any defining features of a helicopter and found none. Plus what i saw flying around in blue and red lights was way to far away and moving around way too quickly, so much so that I honestly thought it was a shooting star for a second.
After 3 minutes I thought i was going crazy so I got up and put a jacket on, and at the same time my neighbor was pounding on my door to go get a video camera. I put a new tape in my camera and sat outside video taping for 10 minutes. It was no helicopter, and the binoculars my other neighbor had showed nothing hanging from it.
It was shooting up and down and around for like 20 minutes, circular shape – i would hate to say saucer shape, but that’s honestly what it looked like. Bright blue lights going all around it and one red light.
I have no idea if this correlates with the other sightings, but i have it on video tape, and tried to convince myself all night it was a parachuter or something, but i have it on video and it could not possibly go up and down that erratically and high in the sky, as quickly as a shooting star if it was a parachute, or anything of that nature.
I have no idea what do do or who to tell, but i have clear video footage, and i would’ve dropped the whole idea if my mom in Seattle hadn’t told me this morning that there was a UFO sighting in Phoenix only a half hour or so before me and my entire apartment complex saw it in the sky out over the ocean.
Any ideas??? Who to contact?? Alternative flying aircrafts?? I haven’t heard back from the local news yet from my call and could only think to google any sightings from last night.
