First, I was trying to flash my headlights into the sky, then as I went up onto the hill, I turned around in my car, stopped the car facing towards newport beach, then as I stepped out a very soft bright peach colored orange light appeared into the mid sky, it was completely clear and no other cars were around. A helicopter looked to be chaseing the UFO but really looked as though it was just fallowing it to look at it closer. Then the light of the UFO faded out a little as it began to move slowely about 30Mph toward the ocean away from UCI going towards Newport COast. Then for a sort moment it looked like a meteor flying with a trail on each side, but really it just had a bright orange light on the front of it and the light faded from the front to the rear of the UFO giving it the meteor affect. Suddenly it disapeared into the sky and that was the end, for a few moments the helicopter circled the hill and I flashed it once but it left just shortly after the UFO left. Moments later about 30 minutes or so later, I looked towards UCI and ElToro base, then suddenly 5 to 6 flashes of white light flashed into the sky all in about 1 second, then just as the white lights finished flashing about 5 to 6 more flashed but in the color of electric blue, same amount of timing. My night was completed. Thanks to the government, I almost had a heart attack. It was my second time, but not this close. First sighting was about 400 yeard + away. Same color in Mission Viejo in 1996 about summer.

Happy Sightings. ((name deleted))
