Location: Thousand Oaks, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:3 hours
bright light in sky every night for last 8 nights and counting CA

For about the last 7 or 8 evenings, starting at roughly sundown (around 8:30 pm) , a very bright light appears in the sky over what I estimate to be Camarillo, which is the next town north from where I witness this strange nightly occurrence. I have viewed it from several different vantage points, both with the naked eye and with binoculars, a well as taken pictures. Anybody who looks up at the sky could clearly see it. It is not being shy or covert at all. It doesn’t seem to move much except to make a very slow descent behind the big mountain that makes up one half of the Camarillo grade (101 freeway, where truck scales are), so by 11:30 or so, it ha disappeared from my view. It does appear to change colors occasionally, from brilliant white, to a hazy yellowish orange, to a bluish white glow, and sometimes a red aura appears on the top part of whatever this is. It also appeared to have some much smaller, much dimmer lights come off it in several instances over the past week. Because there is a military base nearby ( Point Mugu) I at first thought it was some kind of helicopter holding its position in a military exercise of some kind. And it might be just that, I don’t know what it is at this point.

I wouldn’t have even come here to post this, except for a caller I heard on the Coast to Coast radio show that described how he was seeing a strange bright light in the sky from sundown to 11:30pm, and this had been every evening for the last week or so. He went on to describe the very same characteristics that the light I was seeing possessed.

The show host told this caller to report his sighting on this website. So I figured I should do the same with my sighting, for whatever its worth. I unfortunately did not hear where the caller was calling from, but would like to find out if it’s the same light or two different ones in two separate places. I guess I will just continue to watch it at night, and to try to get some better pictures of it.
