Intelligently guided stretch flight flies over La Puente, October 21 1:45 PM

At approximately 1:45 PM Pacific time, I observed a stretched light traveling from north to south ((sic. South to north. Corrected by witness.)) over the city of La Puente.

I was pulling out of the parking lot when I first saw the disc-like shape, it did not appear to be traveling at a high speed but as I drove forward, it began to move in the direction of where the sun was. I am assuming because it noticed that I had seen it and it knew it would make it difficult for me to see it next to the sun.

I yelled to two people next to me to look up and see it. They said they didn't see anything at first, so I yelled, "Block the sun!" He proceeded to block the sun with his right hand, and with his left hand just gesturing to something floating near the sun on the right top corner. I also had confirmation from a ((deleted--beverage)) delivery man delivering to the corner store where I was exiting. Once we were all looking at it it appeared to fly directly over us and as it passed us it was moving northbound towards the Azuza Canyons. '

The entire thing lasted about four minutes, and as I drove away to try to reach my house, I also told people on the road to look up and they also saw what I saw. By time I made it home it was gone. There was a total of five witnesses.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he sounded to us to be an eloquent and serious-minded individual. We suspect that he is an excellent witness. PD))
