Bright white football shaped object, turned neon green and shot off horizontally

While attending a family Thanksgiving in Los Angeles, CA, our family had booked several rooms at the Four Seasons Hotel on Doheny Blvd, near Beverly Hills. Our room was on the 5th floor. Since our room was in the middle of the hotel it became the meeting place for everyone.

The first morning we were there, which was November 26 at about 9 am the room began to shake ever so slightly. We turned on the TV to find that there was a 5.4 earthquake. We were delighted to have a great story to tell when we got home back to Texas. What happened next, paled in comparison to the earthquake.

The last night we were there, Saturday November 28, 1992, we ate out and those of us staying at the hotel came back to pack for Sunday’s departure back to our respective homes across the country. My husband and children went to sleep around 9:30.

My two nephews who had other rooms at the same hotel, came to our room to visit. The room was sort of a one bedroom suite with a separate living area that had a balcony. We went to the balcony at 10:30, I remember because I checked the time and checked on my family who were all asleep.

I was on the balcony with my two nephews ( aged 24 and 26) we could see the layout of the area below which was like a courtyard where people were sitting at tables and walking around. We chatted and enjoyed people watching as well.

All of a sudden, as if someone on the roof had thrown it, I saw what appeared to be a football shaped object bright white light come down in an arc (it did not fall straight down, it arched from the roof to in front of us) to eye level where it seemed to hover in front of us. I happened to be looking up at the sky or roof when it first appeared so I saw it from the get go.

I remember one nephew saying, "What is that?" The light or whatever it was hovered in front of us for what seemed to be a few seconds then took off like a bullet horizontally and as it did so, it changed color from bright white light to a neon green, with the green advancing from the front to the rear of the object as it changed color, it disappeared into the darkness.

Suddenly, we realized it was 3:00 AM, we were sort of surprised that the time flew by, they left to their rooms and we all went right to sleep.

The next morning, we gathered our things said our goodbyes and headed to the airport. While on the plane to Dallas, I suddenly remembered and told my husband, "We saw a UFO or something." He was quite amazed and had me tell him the whole story. He found it significant that neither of the nephews had mentioned it, and I had not remembered it when we were all together that morning.

My eyes started bothering me beginning that day on the plane ride home. I was seeing spots in front of my eyes like you see after flash photography. I assumed it would go away. By Monday, I was trying to get in touch with my nephews to see what or if they were experiencing something. The younger of the two told his mother who told me that in the night of the sighting, he had a bad nightmare that something had him tied down to a table and was trying to hurt him By Thursday of the same week, my eyes were somewhat better, but the spots were still there. So, I went to the eye Dr. He checked and said that I had damage similar to an arc welders burn at the back part of the inside of my eye. He asked if I had been near anyone while they were welding. I told him no, not at all. He said the spots would go away in a few more days and they eventually did.

When I was finally able to speak to my nephews about our experience, neither really wanted to discuss it other than to say it was the strangest thing they’d ever seen. Neither of them could understand why it was 10:30 then 3:00 and why time flew by, furthermore none of us could understand why we all seemed to forget about it completely until I remembered. The nephew that had the nighmare said he didn’t want to talk about it, so I dropped it.

I became obsessed with this experience. Since the Internet was not available at the time, I went to the Dallas Public Library. I asked the Librarian how to report a UFO. She turned to a reference book, and gave me two names. The first of which was in Phoenix, AZ. To this day, I cannot remember the man’s name. I called him and he took down the incident. He may have had me make a drawing and mail it or fax it to him.

He had the oddest monotone voice, very deep but without emotion or inflection. He assured me he would look into it. A few weeks later, he called me and told me that he went to the Four Seasons, he actually stayed in our room (back then I knew the room number and gave it to him-now I can only remember 5th floor) he said that in daylight, the direction at which the bright white object that turned green went on the horizontal level would have taken it into a shopping mall on Robertson Blvd. He said that was not logical.

Furthermore, he said that green lights are a phenomenon that occurs around earthquakes and have nothing to do with UFO’s. His conclusion was that what we saw were those lights.

Obviously, I forgot this man’s name because he did not tell me what I wanted to hear. He did not validate what we knew we saw, a UFO. We knew it was a UFO and have known all this time. He had no explanation as to why the object changed color from white to green as it went horizontal and shot off faster than I can type it.

We know what we saw was a UFO. We were not UFO buffs at the time. This thing or even seeing it was the farthest thing from our minds. What I do know is this thing to me was real. It was an experience I will never forget, and it opened my mind to the fact that we are not alone.

As a sidebar to this experience, when I took the film from our California trip to be developed the girl that was working at the photo shop asked me who was my trip. Well, I told her all about the UFO. She told me that on her way to work a week earlier she saw a diamond shaped UFO which seemed to follow her from Plano, Texas, (along FM 544) to Carrollton, Texas, which is where the photo processing store was. Not just her, but suddenly I found out I knew other people who had seen UFO’s right here in our area.
