2/8/2008 UFO Report Approximately 6:20PM this evening.

I was at the Hilton Hotel at Palomar Airport Road and Carlsbad Blvd (Pacific Coast Highway) 6450 Carlsbad Blvd, Carlsbad, California.

I was walking north east toward the hotel, when I noticed an object flying over the ocean very low and near the shore.

This object appeared to look like a string of lights, a large red light at the base and approximately 4 or 5 smaller blue lights up higher.

I was walking near another person and I asked her if she was able to see it, she stated, “I had noticed it while I was driving into the parking lot; it must be some sort of radio controlled toy”.

We stood their and watched it fly. It was flying, in sort of an undulating motion, south and turned back and went north for a few moments and then turned south again.

The object then flew straight up and continued to gain altitude until it looked like a white star and disappeared.

This whole event lasted approximately 3 minutes.

She dismissed the whole incident, but I said, “It looks like it might be a UFO, because a radio controlled toy doesn’t do that and disappear”.

We then walked into the hotel.
