Red light UFO over El Cajon, July 4th, 2005, for the 3rd year in a row

July 4th, 2005, at apx 9pm, a red oval/circular unidentified object appeared again this year over El Cajon. Last year same apx time, there were two lights traveling side by side for apx 45 minutes to one hour. This year only one object was present, and it appeared in apx the same location, and disappeared within a couple of miles, and was viewable for apx 45 minutes or less.

A semi solid looking fuzzy red light (to the human eye), moving along an extremely slow pace that no know man made aircraft could maintain. No running or flashing lights, no noises made either. It looked like it would take 15 minutes to go just one mile. For the most part it maintained a consitant light source, but would on ocassion alter in intensity, and also seemed to vibrate or move strangely for a moment from time to time.

This happened again just before all the scheduled fireworks were to go off, so there should be hundreds or thousands of people seeing what my girlfriend and I saw. I stayed until the object vanished, it basically started to ascend to a higher altitude, and disappeared. I headed back home (we had gone out for a walk with our dog), my girlfriend had already went home, upon me arriving home, she pointed out in another location south of El Cajon, CA, another strange unidentified object in the sky. This one was very far away compared to the one over head in El Cajon. It was only visible to the eye for apx 3 minutes, and was not as red as the one described earlier. It had the same characteristics as the other described object, etc.

I am a professional photographer and graphic artist, and have a good grasp of the visual world around me. I am sure there will be more reports concerning this sighting by others. I believe that this is the 3rd year in a row, that this event has happened over El Cajon.

The images I took were done in order, starting with the bottom one first. You can see that the object is revolving from a horizontal position to an almost 90 degree turn. Unfortunately 90% of my images got corrupted in the camera at the time of filming this. My camera was malfunctioning out of the blue, I have heard such things have happened to other people filming UFO's.
