It was Saturday evening October 16, 2005. I myself have never in the past seen anything like this or any other UFO's. I still don't know what we saw but it was really wierd and surreal.

My boyfriend and I were having a smoke out in our back patio. I happened to look out towards the west and saw a bright object. At first I thought It was a really bright star. I said to my boyfriend, " Isn't that a really bright star?" He agreed.

The more we looked at it we realised that it couldn't have been a star. We're not too far from Vandenburg air space so we tried to rationalise the whole thing. But then it started.

From the left of the bright object a flashing red object appeared. Naturally we thought it was a plane, but the more we stared at it the more we realised that it was not moving like normal planes. It would hover down then go up suddenly. But naturally we tried to rationalise what we were witnessing.

The red-flashing object was getting closer to the bright star object and circled it once and then quickly hovered away. The more you tried to look at the red-flashing object it seemed to go out of focus.

I decided to get my camera, and as i came back out both me and my boyfriend witnessed something that almost made us S*** in our pants. The redflashing object stopped floating and became as bright as the bright star object for just a few seconds and dimmed out quickly.

As i tried to focus my camera on the redflashing object, I noticed another redflashing object that we had not seen before. As I panned out to look at it, not through the camera lens, I noticed that it was THREE more redflashing objects higher up in the sky that weren't near the original one we initially saw.

I wanted to take pics of them and as i tried to fit them into the shot i noticed that they were traveling at a very slow pace in a triangular pattern. One was all the way at the top or the point of the triangle, and the other 2 were below.

I have to say that I'm not a UFO nut, never been something I've been interested in, but this night sent shivers down my back.

We went back inside after having enough of what we saw. We really tried to rationalise. After watching tv an hour later I decided to go back outside to see if anything was still going on. When i stepped outside I was stumped to see that everything, the flashing red objects and the bright star looking object were all gone.

I only had a disposable camera and the flash kept going off. i have yet to develop the camera. I was really hoping that i would read any similar sightings on this site. There is no way me and my boyfriend were the only ones that witnessed this. The object was bright like a comet coming towards earth.

Very scary, but I am convinced more than ever that we are not alone.
