Stange contrails in the western horizon off coast of San Diego.

Man! I am now completely discouraged by that rude, shell shocked operator on the NUFORC hotline. I'll keep it sipmple.

If anyone can tell me what the heck was making those strange contrail in the western horizon in San Diego County please let me know. And to that operator telling me it is impossibled to tell how high something is from the ground? Im not giving you an exact measurement. All I do know is that whatever it was, based on the speed, motion and movement this event was taking place at a distance measured in miles as opposed to feet. And to that rude operator who says UFO's done leave contrails? If I could identify that flying object I wouldn't be contacting you would I. If it was a small jet or comercial airline flying at high altitude why was it making such stange movements, why did it appear to explode into a bright white arch, how did it morph into a white sphere then grow into a much larger band of white gas? Oh, wait a minute Mr. operator, I thought it was impossible to determine the altitude of a flying object from the ground? High is right, far is right, very unusual is right. At this time is this a Unidentified Flying Object that left contrails (or maybe vapor trails)? Absolutely! Thats why I am doing this. I just hope there is someone out there that can help me identify this flying object.And mr operator, as for all those hoax phone calls from the (760) area code, THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM!!!

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the witness was observing contrails, but we cannot be certain. PD))
