THIS WAS NOT A PLANE OR HELICOPTER/

WE WERE AT PISMO BEACH PIER ON NEW YEAR'S EVE AT ABOUT 8:00 pm WHEN WE SAW A VERY BRIGHT LIGHT COMING OVER THE CITY OF PISMO, WE THOUGHT IT WAS A HELICOPTER, BUT THE LIGHTS WE GLOWING ORANGE & WHITE THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE OBJECT. IT WAS POSSIBLY 500 FEET ABOVE THE CITY. AS IT HOVERED OVER US WE COULD NOT HERE THE SOUND OF ANY PLANE ENGINE OR HELICOPTER BLADES. IT HEADED OVER THE BEACH AND ABOUT 500-1000 FEET BEYOND THE PIER AND AT THE SAME ALTITUDE AND STOPPED COMPLETELY. IT BEGAN TO GET BRIGHTER THEN DIM OVER & OVER AGAIN, THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN WE SAW SOMETHING FALLING FROM THE OBJECT. IT APPEARED TO BE ON FIRE LIKE DRIPPING MATERIAL OR FUEL ON FIRE. IT DID THIS TWO OR THREE TIMES AND THE OBJECT KEPT DIMMING AND GLOWING. THE HALF LIT MOON LIT THE OCEAN ENOUGH FOR US TO SEE IF ANYTHING FELL TO THE SEA, BUT WE DID NOT SEE ANYONE OR ANYTHING SPLASH DOWN. THE OBJECT FINALLY DIMMED OUT COMPLETELY. I READ A SIGHTING REPORT FROM A WOMAN IN WOODLAND CALIFORNIA THAT SEEMED TO BE VERY CLOSE TO OUR SIGHTING. I AM NOT SURE WHERE WOODLAND IS IN CONJUCTION WITH PISMO BEACH BUT CAN YOU CHECK TO SEE IF VANDENBURG MAY HAVE BEEN EXPERIMENTING WITH SOMETHING. I HAVE 12 WITNESSES. MY HUSBAND, MY TWO DAUGHTERS, MY NIECE, MY FATHER & MOTHER IN LAW AND A FAMILY OF 5 STANDING NEXT TO US. PLEASE EMAIL ME @ ((e-address deleted))
