Reported: 8/4/2002 4:04:11 PM 16:04
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Avalon, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30sec.
Very, very, big slow flying Triangle with flasing red lights covering the outside edge of each of the two wings that made up the Triang

I had submited this report on about 7-27-02 and must have made a mistake that prevented the posting of my report.

At the time that I reported seeing a slow flying Triangle(7-23) I did not check you're listings of other reports for 7-23-02 and in the days that followed I now count 12 reports as of today (8-4-02)) of people seeing the same flying object in the sky that night. It was about 10:30p.m when one of our kids in our group were out on our deck of our vacation condo in the back part of Avalon, on Catalina Island.

I was inside my bedroom when I hear one on the 3 girls on the deck yell, "look a UFO" as I walked out onto our deck I look to the south and see a very, very, large slow moving V and the outside of each of the two wings are flasing red lights, just to the inside of that edge of lights I see white lights all very close together and again flashing. It seemed to have afew circles of lights that were in the center that were rotating in white. We were on the side of very step set of hills that reachs 1600 to the south west of us, so inside of 30 sec. we lost sight of this flying Triangle with the hills blocking our view.

The next day I went to the loacl police station in Avalon and they had no reports of this object seen on 7-23-02 at about 10:30.

Being told that they had no reports the members of my running club had fun the next day on the becah and run making all the jokes about what I reported seeing. I,m thankful to one of our members who told me to go on-line and see what I could find.

With the reports for 7-23 staring London, England Occurred time:0015 to reports from Sequoia National Park, from the Tehachapi mts. to Valencia,CA. to the San Fernando Valley to West Hills, Reseda, Santa Monica, to Marina del Rey, into the flight take runway at LAX (for all who would say that it was "One of ours being tested") think that our government would get near LAX after all the problems that took place on 7-4-02 to two reports on Catalina Island seeing it slowing fly into open ocean for the next few thousand miles of open dark skys I cannot hlep put ponder this thought! What would it look like in the day light? It take my breath away thinking what we all saw that night must be parked some place in the daylight. What a thought for all of you who saw it, Thanks to all of you for you're reports, they helped me get through this.
