Location: Huntington Beach, CA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 seconds
Sphere like craft with very strong red light emitting from its tail sighted traveling southwest to northeast near the PCH.

I was sitting on my rooftop, smoking a cigarette in HB, Orange County, when I noticed a loud sound in the sky. The sound was different from a helicopter and when I looked at the craft it was too low to be a plane. The craft was emitting a very intense red light from its tail end.

When it passed over my head, I noticed a spear-shaped craft, but I could not see very clearly as it was dark out. The craft appeared to be white, with some dark color intertwined on the bottom of it.

I told my friend to come out and witness what I saw. When we looked at it about a minute after it had passed, we could very clearly see a very strong red light still emitting from the craft. It was traveling southwest to northeast towards LAX. But when we both looked at it again, it appeared to be hovering to the east. I noticed other aircraft in the area due to me only being an hour from LAX and was paying attention to their lights and it was nowhere near as strong as the craft that I saw.
