Location: San Diego (Cleveland National Forest), CA
Shape: Oval
Duration:2 minutes
I drove as planned up to Mount Laguna to the top of Vista Point where the old radar installation/FAA radar station is, which is now pretty much abandoned as I am familiar with this area as a young kid who's parents owned a cabin for years which is across the mountain on the other side. Myself, my Wife as well as my big sister came along also. I am an avid astronomy buff & had set my Meade Telescope for a view of Mars, as it is so close and a clear night would benefit viewing, along with the altitude.

We noticed a laser shooting into the sky, apparently coming from atop one of the radar towers which we as kids used to call "big golf balls" as they used to look like when they were covered with the white circular enclosures.

After a few minuted the laser stopped and about a half mile behind it, (facing the western sky) a fuzzy red kind of smeared oval just dropped out of the sky approx. 1000 feet high, and slowly moved to the east at a five degree angle, horizontally. And then just stopped and faded away.

With my years of sky watching I am sure this was not a meteor, jet, copter or exhaust from a airplane. This moved with intelligence.

All of us spotted it and found it unusual that this device would be in such a close proximity to the laser signal. Which is obviously what it is and what it was doing at that specific time, with this UFO device so close to it.

This report is FACT as I am a natural born American and hold true to respect and serve the Red, White and Blue. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
