BRIGHT STATIONARY LIGHTS WITH PORT HOLES SOUTH OF LONG BEACH CA

ON FRIDAY MARCH 16, 2007 AT 2130 HOURS I LOOKED OUT A SOUTH FACING 2ND FLOOR WINDOW AND SAW WHAT I ASSUMED TO BE LANDING LIGHTS OF A LARGE AIRCRAFT APPROACHING TO LAND ON RUNWAY 30 AT LONG BEACH AIRPORT. I WATCHED FOR ABOUT 10 MINS. THERE WAS NO MOVEMENT.

IT LOOKED LIKE A CLUSTER OF THREE BRIGHT WHITE LIGHTS. I THEN USED CHEAP, REALLY POOR QUALITY BINOCULARS AND WAS ABLE TO SEE TWO HORIZONTAL ROWS OF WHITE LIT PORTHOLES, ONE ROW ON TOP OF THE OTHER.

I CAN’T SAY IF THE BINOCULARS PRODUCED A DOUBLE IMAGE. THEY ARE REALLY WORTHLESS. I DID MAKE A POINT TO CONFIRM THE ROW/S OF PORT HOLES. THE OBJECT APPEARED TO BE VERTICALLY CYLINDRICAL WITH DOMED ENDS (TOP AND BOTTOM) I’M GUESSING ON THE SHAPE IT JUST WASN’T CLEAR ENOUGH FOR ME TO BE POSITIVE.

THERE WAS SO MUCH BINOCULAR INTERNAL REFLECTION THAT I COULDN’T SEE ANY FURTHER DETAILS. (HORIZONTAL LIGHT STREAKING) WHATEVER IT WAS IT MUST HAVE BEEN SEEN BY MULTIPLE PEOPLE, I SUSPECT YOU HAVE RECEIVED OTHER REPORTS OF THIS OBJECT.
