|Disk light object with rotating white lights along bottom disappears after 5 min.
At approximately 9:00pm PT I was driving north in Lake Elsinore California. It was a clear night sky many stars were visible. My 6 year old son was riding passenger and I was on my phone with a friend. She heard everything I’m about to recount.
What I saw was at approx. 350 degrees in the north sky and at about a 45 degree angle. At first I thought it was a blimp because the size was about that along with the shape, longer body with a shorter height; like one of the super large Goodyear blimps you see at sporting events. Then I realized it wasn’t moving at all and my visibility got better to where I could tell the height wasn’t much at all.
Along the bottom it had white lights that were circling it. The reason I know the lights were moving and not a blinking sequence is because there was a small obvious break in the lights. At the top it appeared to have two smaller lights one red and one white.
I decided to keep driving and try to get a closer look to figure out what exactly I was seeing. As I approached the bottom lights turned off and all I could see vaguely were the top lights. It still seemed a distance away at that point. I made a turn on a side street to continue trying to get closer and after passing a tree I could no longer see anything there, no red light nothing at all. It seemed to have disappeared after about a 4 minute show. I kept asking my son if he was seeing what I was seeing and he was. There was no doubt in either of our minds we were seeing something very unusual in our night sky.
