Location: Carpinteria (near), CA
Shape: Light
Duration:20 mins
What was thought an aircraft, suddenly stopped, did a series of acrobatic tricks, tremendous speed from standstill, no noise. Suddenly disappeared. Seemed alive and connected to minds of viewers.

The light, about as bright as Jupiter is in this part of the world but with a reddish/yellowish(sic) tinge was seen from the beach of La Conchita, Ventura County, California (near Carpinteria, Santa Barbara County, California). The beach faces soutwest.

The craft was seen initially about 30 degrees above the horizon going at aircraft speed. Suddenly seemed to stop, go vertical at faster speed, up and then down, did a series of erratic movements of varying distances and speeds, with no seeming logic. The light seemed to blink and shoot off shortish rays of light.

A couple of minutes after turning around and running to get someone else to see the sight the light was gone. There was no noise. The two viewers were a male counselor in his mid twenties and a professional masseuse in her mid thirties. They felt a mind connection with the light as if it was alive and the masseuse thought, moved with her will to some extent.

THE WRITER WOULD LIKE TO HEAR OF CONFIRMATION FROM OTHERS IF THERE ARE OTHER REPORTS IN THE AREA. THANKS.

((masseuse in her mid thirties.))
