Location: Coronado, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
A bright, 3-4" in diameter light moving in a circle, changing directions and turning into two eyes focussing on me!

I was sitting in a swing in my back yard, reading the newspaper. (There is a high 8 ft. fence on alley and next door house; garage and back of house make up other two sides).

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw movement of a light. This light was about 3-4 inches in diameter, single light, moving in a slow circle; my left to my right side. I looked up to see if there was an airplane/ helicopter, or anything shining into the backyard. No! I got up from the swing, and went to the top of 4 stairs to see if anyone was focussing a mirror into the backyard, or using a blashlight, or checking me out with binoculars. No to the top of four stairs to see if someone (from the Condos across the alley) was focussing a mirror into the backyard, or using a flashlight or checking me out with binoculars. No! I sat back down and watched this light move around in a slow circle, about 3 feet from the swing. I watched for about 5-10 minutes. What caught my interest is: at the time of the day, on daylight time, this part of the yard, garage are in shade. This light then srarted out of it's circle -- going left to right, across a wooden trellis fencing on the side of the house (3 feet high) and continuing . Then this light deviated and started back right to left, then changing back and I was focused on it totally, as this circle stopped at 2 of my potted plants, with herbs in them, and then continuing on. What REALLY caught my interest was when this light started out of it's circle and begin to enter the open garage side door. The light changed tactics and moved two feet of the left of this garage door, and two (2) prominent eyes shaped like oblong spheres, stopped and looked directly at me. During this time of my concentration and these eyes looking at me I felt a sense of uneasiness, as if those eyese were assessing me. I later said to myself...."It was like a Mexican Stand-off"! I have no idea how long these eyes focused on me! And suddenly the eyes, the light was gone! I will say again, that this part of the garage/yard were in complete shade. There is a rather large tree in the corner of this backyard that shades this area.

About myself. I am 72 years old, a college graduate, and a former teacher. I have never particularly been interested in UFO's or read much about them. I know what I saw, and I can't explain it. I did take a copy of my email to my son, down to the local Fire Department. I talked to the Assistant Fire Chief, and left a copy of my email to my son with him. I have recently completed what is known as a class in "Community Emergency Response Team" which necessitated taking over a month's training in Disaster Preparedness, as one focus. Unfortunately, after I had visited this Assistant Fire Chief, someone from that office, called my son, whose's telephone number was on his business email address. Basically, the call was to alert my son, that I was "spreading rumors about this town,and this person thought my son should know what I was doing! The idead! If I had listened to my son, and his bridge buddies (many of whom are former teachers in this town), I would have published that email in the local newspaper. I'm sure that would have raised some eyebrows!!!!! Incidentally, I said, as I prefaced my talk to this Assistant Fire Chief...."I have an FBI clearance, and I am not a nut case".
