Shape: Cigar
Duration:15 Seconds
7/12/65 Santa Monica, California Cigar shaped, glowing red/orange in front, blue back half 15 seconds

I was driving North of Santa Monica, California, on Highway 101, when a craft resembling a cigar approached from the South, the craft appeared quickly, then slowed down and hovered over the car.

It's coloration was divided in half, the front half being red/orange and the back half blue. It was glowing like neon.

I was driving about 55 mph at the time.

The object hovered for about ten to fifteen seconds before rapidly flew forward and out of sight in less than a second.

I stopped at the first gas station and called the Sheriff's office to report the sighting. All that was said to me was that they had several calls already, and that my sighting would be noted.

I have only told a few people about this over the years, but saw a show about UFO's on television recently, and thought I might as well make this report.
