Location: Santa Cruz, CA
Shape: Disk
Duration:30 minutes
A large, metalic disc over the silcon valley region of California.

One Saturday afternoon I was just sitting in a chair in my bedroom. The chair was facing a large picture window exposing the northern sky; towards the Santa Cruz mountains. My eyes happen to catch a small reflection of light bouncing off an object very high in the sky. I staired at the object for about 5 minutes. After realizing it was not a plane I got a pair of binoculars. Once focusing in on the object I quickly realized I was looking at a silver, metalic saucer spinning in place high in the sky. The disc also had a pair of lights spinning around the outer edge of the disc at a very rapid rate. After watching it non-stop for about 10 minutes I got the impression that it was at least 30 to 50 thousand feet in the air and the saucer must have been as big as a football field. The most shocking thing about it was that it was in the middle of the day without a cloud in the sky.
