Reported: 6/24/2006 5:29:14 AM 05:29
Posted: 7/16/2006
Location: Simi Valley, CA
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
Strange yellow oval of light weaving at sharp angles, definitely not any type of plane or helicopter.

As a security officer on patrol during the graveyard shift I noticed a very strange light in the sky over Simi Valley. I was at the intersection of Royal and First St. and saw a light that was definitely not like an airplane, it was too large, the color was more yellow and completely steady (not flashing). The light appeared to be circular but slightly oval with barely visible light lines darting from the most accute point of the oval. The light moved very slowly and made a zig zag pattern in the sky that was definitely not that of an airplane. The light was definitely unlike any helicopter light (again, not flashing) and that is the only other flying object it might have been judging by it's pattern of flight (ability to weave back and forth at sharp angles).I was only able to witness this for five minutes, from 23:57 on 6/5/06 to 00:02 on 6/6/06. I had to continue my patrol and felt I would appear foolish to call in a UFO sighting to my dispatch center or local law enforcement.
