2 Fling Discs Seen In Santa Barbara 1-5-02

We videotaped 2 objects that hung in the sky for 7 or eight minutes. They did not appear to be moving then they moved in and out of each other. They then disspeared.

((NUFORC Note: We do not know what the objects were that the witness describes, but the description of the two objects coming together make us wonder whether the "sighting" might be an artifact of the camera's focussing system. When a video camera is set on "Auto Focus," if it is used during darkness, the lens will "hunt" for something to focus on, and double images will result. They can be seen in the viewfinder, and on the film. PD))
