It was amazing

I was working at my part time job at McDonalds located in Ventura and it was a regular busy night. Every night I have to take the trash out to the big trash bins around 9:30 p.m. These trash bins are across the parking lot of the shopping center so it is quite a walk for me. It was May 20, 2002 and it was a dark night. When I went out to put the trash out I spotted lights flashing across the sky like the search lights that you sometimes see for airplane landings. These did not look like searching lights but I ignored them and went back to doing my job because I was getting off early. A while later I was pulling out of my job and I saw the lights again. They were flashing now up on the hills of Ventura up by the two trees. I drove closer but all I could see were the bright green lights. Then I heard a huge noise like a door was slamming but not a regular door, like a metal door. After the loud noise the lights disappeared and there was wind surfacing my car. Since I had the windows down it blew throughout my car and then everything stopped like nothing had happened. I am reporting this as a UFO sighting because I don’t know what else it could be. I could barley make out what it was but it looked to resemble a cone shaped object.

((NUFORC Note: This is one of a flurry of reports we received from Ventura County, CA, following three telephone calls we received on May 18, 2002, from a raucous student party. The reports seemed to us to be not convincing at the time of the call, a fact which we shared with the callers. Shortly afterwards, approximately a dozen reports were submitted from that area. We have no way of confirming any of these reports. PD))
