|It was a summer night. I had gone camping with my dog to a mountain elevation (Placerita Canyon)north of LA.
The stars were very bright on a very clear desert night. I was laying on the hood of my car leaning against the windshield looking for shooting stars (which I've done umpteen times), when one of the "stars" (looked like a star) switched positions on the sky couple of times (laterally).
Then it moved at a tremendous speed on an oblicual direction a made a 90º turn and proceeded on a ascending path till it disappeared from sight.
I was breathless. Then 6 weeks ago I saw the Peter Jennings special on UFO's and your site was highlighted.
No, I've never seen an UFO and always beleived that what I saw was a light refractory phenomena. However, sometimes, it's that missing link that come finalize the "big picture". ((name deleted))
P.s: I remember the year for I just had turned 25 that April.
