UFO aircraft seen on the horizen.

The event occured while I was camping at Lake Casitas. At the campsite me and couple of others were sitting down looking at the horizon star gazing. While we were stargazing a light appeared out of nowhere that resembled a bright star, much like Jupiter or another close planet. The light moved down right above the mountains, and hovered there for what seemed to be half an hour. Then the light moved to the east about 300 - 400 yards (hard to tell due to distance). The movement of the craft was instantaneous and very smooth. From my experience of observing aircraft no known modern craft is capable of this kind of movement. Then a second light appeared, exactly like the first light. It moved to where the first light was, then joined the first light. It stayed there for about half an hour and then went up and dissapeared. The first light remained in its original position for another 10 minutes, then also went up and dissapeared.

It is my firm belief that these were UFOs. I was under no narcotics or alcohol, and have never taken hallucenegens.

((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))
