Shape: Light
Duration:5-10 minutes
Saw noisless, extremely-low clear light slowly cruise past us and over hills, where "encountered" and newspaper-reported.

One evening - about dusk, in Menlo Park, CA - where we were living at that time - we were driving south on El Camino Real and were mildly curious - seeing what appeared to be a noiseless aircraft flying, VERY slowly and VERY LOW - southward - between us on the ground and the dusky outline of the line of hills to the west called "the Skyline." We didn’t think too much about it, after it slowly then flew more westerly and up over the Skyline and disappeared towards the community on the west side of the Skyline called Pescadero.

To our utter surprise, the next morning's newspaper, "The San Francisco Chronicle," reported a story about two young teenage boys in Pescadero, who - that previous evening - had been in that town's eastern outskirts, and having a flashlight with them, when they saw a strange object above them, "just for fun" shone it up at the object and flashed "S O S" - - whereupon, that "object" started to descend right down on top of them - - ! and, "scared xxxxless," they ran away into the brush and hid!

When they later reported this to "authorities," those who came out to check it DID find a large burned circle in the grass and brush at the spot the boys described. We felt that whatever it was there in Pescadero must have been the same curious thing we had seen on the east side of the Skyline - just before whatever the boys saw there in Pescadero.
