Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 minutes
Huge black circle with fire ball!

Date we saw object: 11/16/12
Time: 8:30-9:00 pm
Where: Above Santa Cruz Island head south bound on the 101 freeway between Rincon and Seacliff.

My daughter, boyfriend and I were headed home after having dinner in Carpinteria, Ca. We live in La Conchita, Ca. Due to the freeway construction we now have to pass our town and exit Seacliff, then turn around on the freeway headed north to come home. As I was driving past LC my daughter got all excited. She said she just say a big bright light out over the ocean. As we passed Mussel Shouls she screamed there it is! I turned and saw a bright orange and red ball of fire circling what looked like a blacked out moon hanging just above the Santa Cruz Island. It was so bright I could see the outline of the mountains on the island.

We pulled to the side of the freeway just before Seacliff and got out of the car. I could see the oil rigs clearly. The object we say was way past them and seemed to be at least 5 times bigger and 100 times brighter. You could tell it was just above the island not moving. Then the lights fadded and went out.

We got back in the car and started for home headed north bound now. As we were coming up to Mussle Shouls the object reappeared.
