Location: San Marcos, CA
Shape: Circle
Duration:5 minutes
I was leaving my friends house after swiming in the pool and I had one friend with me and it was about 1145 at night and i was fallowing my friend out of his neighbor hood when i looked to the east and saw this orange light to the east. The reasion I stoped and looked was becaue about 6 months ago I saw a light the exzact shape and color that was flying close to my house and acting very strage. I was watching this object and it just seemed to be moving around in maybe a circular pattern would be the best way to describe it but really no set path and then I saw it appear to drop stuff. The object its self is a bright orange ball. If you took like one of the lamps off a police chopper in the front but had a orange tint to it thats what this looks like and makes no sound. It was too high to be a chopper because my estemations it was at over 30,000 feet for over 5 min so it couldnt be a chopper because the air is too thin to run the engines that high. But it appeared to drop objects from the circle, the best way to describe it was it looked like slag (the hot pieces of metal that come off from welding) was falling off of it. It did that about 3 times then it dissapeared for about 30 sec to a minute then it came back droped another piece of slag then it dissapeared for good.
