Appearance / Description of Object(s)
As I said it was a big white ball when it came from nowhere and then it was a big orange ball as it lifted upward into the night sky. As it came toward me it was just a big orange ball. As it started to climb straight up in the night sky it was v-shaped like a boomerang with bright white lights from what appeared to be its engine boosting it upward. It looked black as it turned skyward.
Size of Object(s)
As for the size it was larger than any aircraft I have ever seen. Very large.
Description of Area / Surroundings
When I first saw it, it was North of Saddleback mountain, East of my position. I believe in a urban area.
Full Description & Details
At about 9:45 pm I was talking to a friend on my iPhone and was standing on my patio facing Mission Viejo Lake when I saw a white ball fall from the sky, North of Saddleback Mountain, East of my position. The white ball seemed to come from nowhere. I told my friend what I was seeing and then as I was closing the patio door behind me going back into the house I saw an orange ball rise up from about the same area that I saw the while ball fall from the sky. While still talking to my friend I turned my camera on and took a picture. As I took the picture I noticed that my flash was on and while I was turning it off the object started to go straight up into the sky. I then took a few more pictures and watched the object go straight out into the stars. I could not believe what had just happened.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
I cannot explain what I saw. I am retired from the military and I do not know of anything that did what it did.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I have watched many documentaries on TV. I have always believed that it is possible that we are not alone, but after the other night there is something out there.
