Cigar-Shaped UFO, sited off the San Diego Coastline.

On the evening of October 26th, 2017, I witnessed and filmed a cigar-shaped UFO from my balcony. I was able to take two videos of it before it disappeared behind some trees.

I went out to my balcony to look at the sunset, which I do every evening, and I noticed a cigar shaped (glowing bright white) object, hovering in a vertical position. It caught my eye because it was so bright. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, so it was easy to see.

When I started to focus on the object, it rotated to a 2 o’clock position, and then started to descend in a slow, deliberate manner. As it descended, it rotated to a horizontal position, as it was moving south. It descended to a few hundred feet off the ground, and then continued to move in a somewhat straight line, until it disappeared behind some trees in the distance.

I live in San Diego, CA, approximately 3 miles from the ocean. The object looked to be a few miles off the coast. Also, as it was moving south, a commercial airliner flew in front of it (on video). It gives a good perspective of how large it was. Even though the object was a few miles west of the airplane, it seemed to be as large, or bigger than the plane.
