Lewis Rd./ Camarillo FLYING SAUCER UFO seen in daylight during November, 2005

I live in Camarillo off of Lewis Rd. a few blocks from Ventura Blvd. The nearest cross-street is Adolfo Rd and Lewis Rd. It was sometime in November or December of 2005 in the afternoon around 4:30 pm. I was using the internet inside the house when I heard my two dogs outside errupt in a frensy of barking that seemed particularly alarming. I tried to ignore it for a while, but it only got worse and I was alarmed too.

I went outside to see what on earth was going on and I found my grandmother sitting in the garden. She told me excitedly that she had been yelling for me for a while to come and see a strange craft in the sky though I had not heard her. She had been watching it approach the house from the direction of Ventura Blvd towards Adolfo Rd., hovering, then flying in a path paralel to Lewis Rd.

The dogs were disturbed, barking like crazy looking upward at the sky over our backyard fence. I looked up and saw a light grey to silverish, reflective, solid disk hovering silently past the house rather slowly and indecisively and then picking up speed. Amazingly, it had the solid metalic bulk of a normal aircraft but with a saucer-disk shape and could slowly hover and "float" silently and weightlessly like a baloon and then pick up speed and follow a straight path. It had a reflective, very shiny exterior. I could see it very clearly and was amazed. It was like no aircraft I have ever known to exist in fact. It looked like your "typical 1950's" flying saucer.

My grandmother said that she had been watching it approach for some minutes and that it had been very low over the house and had ascended a bit by the time I saw it. It was oddly silent and left no trail. I was surprised that my dogs were so disturbed by it since they don't react at all when noisy helicopters and planes fly over the house often and at times quite low since there is an airport and a military base nearby. They seemed to be able to distinguish the unique and alarming nature of the craft as well as we two humans could.

I want to stress that we had a perfect view of the UFO as it was directly over the house and we both clearly saw it. As I watched it, it finally picked up speed, ascended and disapeared and reapeared in the atmosphere until about a block away it vanished.

In the past, when I have seen footage of UFO's, I have believed that they were pathetic ploys for attention and the result of special camera effects. I now know that this is not always the case. What I saw confirmed the t.v. footage I have so long been skeptical of, expcept, in person the sighting is clearer and more dimensional and tangible and "truthful" than a camcorder can convey. Sometimes the t.v. footage looks blured. What we witnessed was a solid clear craft. The truth of its shape was tangible though extraordinary. I wondered in amazement that a flying saucer could silently and boldly skoot though the skies of a quiet suberban neighborhood in such a clandestine way. I had to see it to believe it.

My friends say they have seen strange glowing UFO's in the dark early morning skies before work that are "star-like" but absolutely not stars. They note that there are many sightings around military bases and think that these are secret government projects kept from the public. It makes me wonder.
