UFO spotted over Hemet, CA around 8:49pm Sep. 14, 2008

At about 16:49 pacific time my neighbor gave me a call and told me to come outside because there was a UFO above our houses. I ran to see what he was talking about and sure enough there was some unknown craft above us.

It was up pretty high up and dark outside so we couldn't tell what shape it was but, it was glowing orange as if it was on fire. The glow was almost as if it was pulsing but not going completely out.

When I saw it, it was hovering in one location and appeared to not be moving at all. About 30 seconds after I first saw it it started to accelerate fairly quickly to the east. It traveled not to far and just disappeared.

I went to my neighbors house as they saw it much longer. They said it was coming from the north and was glowing a bluish color and as it got closer they saw what looked like sparks coming off of it. My neighbor said she was sure a plane was gone drop out of the sky. As it got closer the glow changed from blueish to a fiery orange. And then the craft stopped above them. That's when I got the call and rushed outside.

I have no idea what it was but the orange glow could not have been a normal aircraft. Possibly a military jet with afterburners on flying straight up could explain why it was stationary at first and appeared to accelerate so fast. I dunno but it was the strangest thing I've ever seen.
