Location: San Marcos, CA
Shape: Other
Duration:15 minutes
Moving lights with very bright colors moving from horizon to horizon.

At approximately 10:50 PM I saw a faint blue hazy object in a westerly direction. I thought it was unusual and continued to watch and realized that it was moving in my direction. I watched the object continuously for about 15 minutes only leaving twice. Once to get my wife and the once to get binocculars. As it got nearer, the object appeared brighter (no doubt because of its proximity) and also other colors were evident. I waited too long to look at it with binocculars but when I did was suprised at the richness of the color. The "front" was a deep blue approaching violet. The center was a brilliant green and the back was a deep red. It was difficult to perceive any definite shape. There appeared to be at least a dozen lights within the colors but didn't appear to be the source of the color. It's important to note that the colors I saw didn't look like a reflection off of any kind of fusalage but rather appeared as a glow like one would observe from neon. The object made no noise, didn't change direction, speed or altitude. The lights didn't change in intensity nor did they blink. I am posting this after having read another post from my town around the same time. I think they entered the time wrong, however. Also, because of the time of the sighting and the direction it was going, I think the sighting of an object in Mt Laguan at 12:10 that morning may somehow be related. I do have a posting on the internet for the next morning at an independent source so it can be verified that I reported this before reading the the other sightings in the area.
