Location: Watsonville, CA
Shape: Disk
Duration:4-5 seconds
Circular or disc shaped flying object with flashing lights, light in color, silent and leaving instantly.

I was walking my dog along a road which is lined with tall eucalyptus and pine trees planted approximately 25-30 feet apart. I witnessed what appeared to be a circular, or saucer shaped flying object. It was the color of a very pale, clear sky. What caught my attention were the round flashing lights around the perimeter. It was flying behind the tall trees. It was silent in its movement, moving in the direction North/Northeast. It was flying parallel to the ground approximately midway between the height of the trees. I ran to the next open space between the trees to get another look, but the object was no longer in sight. It had left the area almost instantly.

When small or large airplanes fly over this area at a much higher altitude, the noise can be heard. This flying object was silent. Because the object left so quickly, I was unable to determine its actual size.


Distance and height of flying object seen

This information is in addition to the first report of this incident. I walked back to the area where I observed the UFO and counted off steps in order to give better location.

I was approximately 15 feet from the fence and the object was approximately 15-20 feet over the fence. Comparing my height 5'3", to height of object it was approximately 15-20 feet above the ground.

This is a quite, rural area at the end of a dead end road. I have never seen anything fly that close to the ground and not make a sound. This incident first seen and reported on January 27, 2011
