Location: Santa Barbara, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:4 minutes
Orange light over Santa Barbara

No craft. One orange light, like a flame glowing. No noise. We are up on the Riviera. It was up above the city, in from the ocean, but with the ocean and full moon in the background on a clear night. It was in a direct line up from our bedroom french door looking out to the ocean.

It was lower than the moon--in a straight line from our window to start.

Opened the door and walked to deck to watch it. It was still about a minute, don't know how long it had been there. It then rose very slowly, one orange light. It was not a perfect oval, but it was round. It was slightly oblong, longer horizontal than vertical. No smoke. It traveled slowly in an upward direction and slightly to the right, a bright dark orange glow like a fire flame. The glow maintained it's color as it rose slowly up in a line.

After a few minutes it was moving higher up and finally becoming distant and getting smaller. Near the end of the sighting from the distance it looked possible to then ! be composed of three lights together but couldn't tell because of the distance. It finally disappeared. All at the same slow deliberate pace. Our neighbors saw it too.
