Duration: 2 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
classic disc and dome shape with horizontal slits with unexplainable lights - Nipomo U.S. 101 S. 10:10 p.m. on 4/17/10.

I was driving south on U.S. 101 near Nipomo. The time was 10:10 p.m. It was very near the Thompson Road exit. After going up a hill, my car's headlights shone on what looked like a "classic" disc shape with a dome on it. It had horizontal slits on it that had some kind of lighting that can't be explained - somewhat similar to a cat's eyes when you shine a flashlight on them. The object filled up the windshield view area.

When the car's lights lit up the shape, it flashed and then disappeared immediately.

This lasted only a few seconds, but it seemed like a long time. Immediately I became very frightened. I drove quickly to get home.

There were several other cars behind me that had to have seen it, as well.
