Nine sightings in two months over Goleta/Santa Barbara

In the past two months, I have witnessed no fewer than nine anomalous objects in the skies above Goleta/Santa Barbara.

Three of the sightings were daytime and six were at night. The daytime sightings included an object that shifted in appearance from circular soap bubble to jet shape to white ovoid over the course of three minutes and another that appeared as a small plane missing its wings, while the third appeared as a lenticular cloud just offshore on an absolutely clear and cloudless day. In over thirty years in the area I have seen lenticular clouds only once (over the coastal mountain tops of course). The night sightings included; one close up of triangular shape approximately 1000 feet overhead that seemingly accelerated into the outer atmosphere, the second had no discernible shape in the dark but had two amber lights of magnitude -4, fore and aft, flying at prop plane speed, the others were point sources of white light moving at unusual velocities (not satellites) or flashing (again, not satellite flashes which tend to be slower and periodic in their changes of magnitude).
