Location: Carlsbad, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:3-5mins.
10/02/08 just before sunrise, dark skies. Hovering white light which turned to blinking blue & red. Lasted 5 mins long.

Time of event was 10/02/08 0545 hrs. There was a hovering light on top of the hill (Poinsettia Lane & Black Rail Road) which lasted about 5 minutes long. This sighting was the 2nd time. The 1st was last month between 2400-0030 hrs. by my colleague in which we both have the graveyard shift security in the church at Poinsettia Ln. He had told me about his sighting & therefore I kept a watchful eye on the exact area. Behavior of the object was identical as was observed by my colleague.

The top of the hill is about 400 yds from my location In which Poinsettia lane intersects with Black rail Rd. There are 3 street light posts which illuminate at the top of the road/ hill. I noticed a bright light half the size of the street light hovering, circling around 200 yds to the right side. It changed to a blue & then red blinking light. It would just circle from on top of the street light to 200 yds to the right where there is a tower, it would dip down back of the tower & then go back & forth to the top of the road where the street lights were. I walked to the parking lot & informed the pastor who had been parked waiting in the car for a couple of minutes as he was early for the day. I pointed to where the UFO was hovering, we both watched it then I proceeded to walk closer to it about 75 yards to see if it had a sound. There was no sound. It was more like a small object as if it could be a remote control toy. Its behavior was similar to a firefly hovering around. I noticed it couldn’t be an airplane or a helicopter since there is an airport in the left far side of the hill. Airplanes often land & take off but I could later hear them. I later lost sight of it because I attempted to walk to another person at the parking lot which slopped down. As I went back towards it the object was gone. This took place just before sunrise, it was still quiet dark. The hovering speed would be around that of a remote control plane. I now have my camera handy hoping to catch it again.
