Boomerang shaped craft with orange lights on bottom sighted in Covina, CA.

Personal account of sighting: On Friday, May 12th at approximately 22:17 my fiancé and I were exiting our vehicle at her home in Covina, California. I went over to close her passenger door when she noticed something floating in the night sky. It was gray in color and at first appeared to be an owl or bird of prey with a large wingspan hovering above her house. Upon closer inspection, we both realized that it was not! As I looked closer I noticed the following: Was boomerang in shape... § It floated about 500-2000 feet in the air § moved slightly faster than a blimp, however, not as fast as a conventional aircraft § was very well camouflaged in the orange-gray night sky § had a wingspan of about 30-60 feet § moved in a North East direction § had an airspeed of less than 50 miles per hour § had what appeared to be very tiny and faint orange lights all over it under carriage § did not change course or speed § had no engine sounds § and, no navigation lights common to conventional aircraft. I quickly scrutinized what we were looking at based on my knowledge as a senior aircraft maintenance technician in the Air Force reserves. It was then that I (and my fiancé) realized what we had seen. We looked at each other and acknowledged the facts; we had seen a UFO. As to the nature of its origin (military or alien) we could not say with any certainty. We do however, agree it was an advance technology. It should be noted that we were looking in the sky because there was some police helicopter activity about two miles away. The object we saw appeared to have no concern of the busy night sky and was headed in the opposite direction. The next day, My pager failed to function. I called the paging company and they sent me a new one. However, that one did not work and they had to send another, and another. The third pager was an upgaded "diffrent signal" unit and then worked. However, each page I had including the original, turned on and has a "beep" as if fully functioning.
