Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Blue spherical light moving in a corkscrew spiral, very fast with no sound, moving west in Northern California.

It was a warm night so we had the shades up and windows open, hoping to catch a breeze from outside. I woke up to use the bathroom and walked into the bathroom facing the window, as I entered the bathroom a bright bluish light outside my window, caught my eye. I moved toward the window without turning on the light and watched as the spherical blue light moved in a spiral motion heading west directly toward me, moving very quickly. It continued it's corkscrew spiral right over my house, I heard no sound or engine noise, just a woosh of air as it went right over the roof tops. I moved to the window in my bedroom but it was gone. The light seemed to strobe in unison with the corkscrew spiral motion but this could have been an optical illusion due to it's motion. As a former Marine Aviation Ordinanceman I can tell you that the US Military does NOT have anything that can fly like that.
