Full Description & Details
At around two thirty in the morning I was outside smoking a cigarette on a balcony in my apartment complex from which there is a great view looking over the San Bernardino Valley. I was looking at the sky when my eyes noticed and focused on a small, very bright white light traveling left at an upward slant across the sky. At first I thought it was an airplane and perhaps it came from behind a tree or building and that was why it seemed to appear so suddenly and out of nowhere but as I watched it move (and after I concluded that there was nothing that could have been blocking my sight) I was pretty sure it wasn’t an airplane. The light didn’t move in a straight line but it wasn’t at all erratic and it also seemed to vibrate. It curved up (I may have imagined it but it seemed to slow down) and it looked as though it were flying right at me. As it did this I got very nervous; I looked down at my cigarette for a second, the only time I took my eyes off that light, and even though there was much of it left I contemplated throwing it over the balcony and rushing back to my apartment, but curiosity held me in my place. I know this almost very possibly was my imagination but I felt and still feel that the light was aware of me. The light then curved left and continued in its original direction. The light flew behind a cloud but I could still see it perfectly and again it stood still but then slowly faded smaller and away. But the way it faded I feel needs to be emphasized for it was so extremely and beautifully fluid that it convinced me what I was seeing was real. What came next is very hard to explain; there were two flashes of light above where the light had zoomed away and they appeared in an almost zigzag formation, but they weren’t flashes of the same white orb, or they could have been but what I’m trying to say is their looked, their effect was very different and the color was golden. When I saw the flashes I instantaneously associated it in my head with pictures of fireworks or glitter being tossed. I also felt like I knew the UFO was accelerating away. And then it was over.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
The only other thing I conclude it might have been was a satellite because of the white light, but satellites don't move or disappear the way this craft did.
I am a senior in high school.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I've always been a believer and I've read and watched many things on UFOs but I didn't think I would ever see one.
