Duration:10 minutes
Bright multi-colored flashing UFO seen above the mountains of Palm Springs, California in August, 2013.

Date: August xx, 2013 – I cannot remember the exact date now, but it was the beginning of August
Time: Around 8:00 pm
Location: Cathedral City, California
Direction: Looking towards the west, near the tram on top of the mountain
Event: My daughter, who is 10 years old came inside the house and told me to come out and look at this strange light in the sky. I went out immediately, and noticed a light, bigger than the Palm Springs tram light in the sky above the mountain ridge. It was positioned a little to the right and up above the tram light (about an inch to the left and 2 inches up above in a visual sense). The light was big and pulsating all different kinds of colors (red, orange, yellow, blue, green, purple, and which) – simply beautiful.

I quickly went inside to get the camera, but realized that the batteries were dead. I went out the back with my daughter and also told my wife to come and look at it outside. She’s not that surprised in UFO’s, but casually walked outside and looked up to see the same thing. This multi-color flashing object was there for about 10 minutes in the sky before slowing descending down below the mountain ridge. It did not reappear.

My daughter and I have seen things like this here in the night sky before. I have always believed in UFO’s and have seen a few instances in the past. I am always looking for them, but for some reason, never really ever see any, at least out here. I have also talked to others around the area out here that have seen other similar events, but never reported them or talked about them to anybody else.

I didn’t know about this site before, and have been very apprehensive about doing a report. I just usually don’t do reports like these since I consider these events normal, and read others reports all the time. However, I do feel better about posting this sighting. I wish I had others to talk to that have had similar experiences, but I don’t.
