going so. on the 57-fwy appox at brea cyn. rd. in the city of brea. I was in the back of my family station wagon. I looked up and saw a slow moving craft appox. 1-200-ft. above and to the west of our car!

I was appox. 16yrs old when I saw this craft. I am now 43 yrs old and can see this in my mind as clearly as it happen only 5 mins ago! also a day never goes by without me remembering the event. we were coming back from a camping trip at crystal lake. as i stated eariler i was in the back of our family station wagon ehen i looked up and saw what looked like to be a giant bird flying appox 1-200 ft. up and to the west of our car, just below the top of the mountains and seem to be go the same speed and dirrection as us. what really gets me and why i am finnaly telling someone about this is, i have heard David Davenport on Art Bells show now several times, and never heard any discription like what i saw. this was now what i call "bird of brey shape"the color of this thing was dull green. what it reminded me of in regards to color was that of copper when it tarnishes. the shape was very close to that of the "bird of prey" seen on star trek! I know this was a long time ago and I hope I dont sound crazy, but I got to know now if anyone else has ever seen anything shaped like this?
