IT WAS NIGHT AND WE WERE WALKING ALONG THE BEACH WHEN FROM BEHIND THE SAND DUNES A GREEN FIREBALL HOVERED ABOUT 10FT OFF THE GROUND THEN APPROACHED US. WE ALL RAN AWAY.

Imagine the beach at night... How the water seems black. There was a thick fog rolling in and a few of the citys orange lights were barely visable through the fog. My cousin and I were camping at Dillion's beach with our family. When our parents had gone to sleep my cousin and I snuck out of our camp to meet up with these two girls we had meet eailer that day. I remember they were students of the Sacramento FFA. We meet up with these girls and decide a walk along the beach would be kinda fun. So we followed the trail through these large sand dunes that obscure the view of the beach. When we got out on the beach we began to flurt around and my cousin said he wanted to sit with girl he was talking with. I still wanted to walk the beach and so did the other girl (I don't know their names - only that the blonde had a good size scar on her left cheek) So we began to walk the beach and we were talking about somthing when she suddenly grabbed my arm and in a husshed tone said "What is that?" Ilooked up to where she was pointing. "I saw something move over there." I looked and saw nothing. Just fog, ocean and a few specks from the street lights about a mile and a half away. I told her she was seeing things and we continued to walk, but this time she grabbed my arm violently - nearly making me fall over. "LOOK!" I looked up to see a green aura slowly emerge from behind the dunes and it slowly floated towards the shore. It casted a lime green color but unlike an electric lightbulb beam, the light emmiting from this thing was spread out evenly, there seemed that there was no source, no origin to the unearthly green glow. I looked over at the girl and said "Let's go get my cousin". She agreed hastily as we ran down the beach to find him. He was were we left him with the other girl and I ran up to him from out of the darkness and in a tone I have never spoken before said "GET UP AND COME WITH ME NOW!" and for some reason he did not even ask why as I lead the other three back up the shore line. All the while I was thi! nking how stupid we would sound once we got there and nothing was to be seen. Much to my suprise the green aura was there! It was hovering silently above the wet part of the sand. All four of us stood in shaock. I remember someone asking what it was but no one answered because the aura began to move. And it was moving towards us! The two girls immediatly turned tail and fled as my cousin grabrd my shoulder and told me to run. I resisted and he let go and began to run as I looked back the aura was moving much faster than a seconed before and it was coming at me... I felt afraid for my life...I have never been afraid like that ever. I stood there just a moment longer to get a good look at it then I too ran away as fast as I could and I never looked back. When we got back the girls went to their camp and my cousin and I sat around the embers of our campfire. We began to talk about what we had seen when a horrible scream filled the night air. It was a girl's scream and it was coming from the girl's camp. The girl that my cousin was talking with on the beach begaing to scream out at the top of her lungs "WHAT was IT? WHAT was it? WHAT was it?" Untill the members of her camp came out to calm her down. She was having a breakdown mentally and it really set in my mind that what we saw out there is nothing we are ever taught about in school.
