Further Description of Sighting: The first was on 17 SEP 13. I went to have a smoke and from my balcony I saw in the distance six bright lights coming up the coast. they were in a tight group and I thought it might be a group of choppers but there was no sound.
The lead three distanced themselves from the rear three. Movemt was odd. erratic but precise as far as formation. Suddenly the first three made what appeared to be a ninety degree turn, accelerated and just vanished.
It was one of those WTF moments and I was having trouble believing what I just saw when the other three followed suit and were gone in seconds. Evidently there were others who witnessed them and reported as well.
I know think it may have been two larger objects with three distinct lights because the distance between never varied in either group.
The second was tonight, 29 OCT 13. Again, I went out after dinner for a smoke. The approach for San Jose Airport runs pretty much right over my roof and there is always a line of planes coming in. I looked to my left and saw what I thought was a plane very low and heading directly towards my location.
My next thought was this didn’t make sense .I’d never seen a plane approach from that direction. After a few moments I realized it wasn’t moving at all. It was hovering in one spot, possibly with a slight swaying motion.
It appeared as a bright white light edged with a multi- colored aura for lack of a better word. I watched it ,puzzled, for about 15 minutes, looked at it with binoculars and tried to find landmarks to see if it was moving.
Then, a friend happened to stop by. I showed him what I saw and his first comment was ” that things not moving. What the hell is that” We watched it for another ten minutes or so, then went inside thirty minutes later, we went out to have a smoke and check on the mystery light and it was gone.
I even went to the other side of the building to see if, by some chance it was a bright Venus or something, whether it had moved with the rotation but there was nothing . No trace anywhere around of an! orbiting object.
Just another head scratchier. know I am not a crackpot, delusional, hallucinating, or seeking attention. I am also unaware of any aircraft that can hover, with no movement or sound , and certainly not one that makes ninety degree turns an disappears so I believe it can be only one thing.
If anyone else in my area sees this and had a similar experience, please share. Thanks
