Duration:30 min.
Light overe ocean traveled at low speed until directly overhead at200 to 400 ft. classic saucer with dome on top appeared cast of gold and lit from within. no lights or windows. Resolution to where a 6-inch fitting would be obvious. no sound, lit beach for a radius of 75 yards. WE panicked and ran for car a mile away. Followed us to car. Ignition functioned and I persuaded a terrified 4 people to continue to observe, After 6 minutes it rose at an incredible speed straight up , becoming a star within 6to 10 seconds. No sound, sonic boom or trail. DIAMETER; 150 feet dome to dome height perhaps 40 to 50 feet. Stress not a blurry light. This was a vehicle that saw us on the shore and came in to examine us. One anomaly. We all sensed a force intruding on our minds once we reached car.. I was a science student and amateur pilot at time, a good observer, rational as hell. This sighting remains crystal clear after some 34 years and I have zero doubt it was a craft from a distant neighborhood. That's a joke. Area is known as the lost coast of Ca. for its isolaion.
