Shape: Fireball
Duration:90 seconds
Standing on Main Side, Camp Pendleton, and looking west, my wife noticed a bright light. This was a perfectly clear night with no cloud cover in the sky. She pointed it out to me and I first thought it was a comet. It was a bright light with a long tail. The tail was white and red in color. After a few moments, the tail went away, but the light continued to move in a linear fashion and appeared to slow down. The next thing to happen was out of the light, a spherical cloud, appearing grey in color, was emitted. Within the grey cloud, a bluish light could be seen. This bluish light was horizontal, appearing cylindrical in shape although it was hazy through the cloud. The ball of light could still be seen for several moments. Later, the bluish light vanished, and the ball of light could no longer be seen, although the cloud lingered much longer.
