Description of Area / Surroundings
rural area, 28 miles south of san jose, ca. No airports nearby, while the 3 objects did not appear to be getting dimmer nor brighter, but were still.
Full Description & Details
We saw this from our home, which is away from city lights. These stuck around for a good half hour, while we called the police, were directed to a UFO hotline, and then to the FAA to alert aircraft of a possible hazard. 5 adults and a 17 tear old among the family present all witnessed this anomaly, a first for all. I also went outside to be sure I was getting as best a view as I could, and steadied my field glasses, focusing them back and forth repeatedly to keep bringing the brightest/largest object into view. I got innumerable focused views of this UFO, and it was NOT an airplane, nor moving satellite or missle. It was too tall for a plane or helicopter, at times appearing like a big upright wheel of lights, and at other times looking like a dome, and the thing wasn't moving, although the lights flickered, presumably due to the distance. Then, all 3 were just gone, as though turned off.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Not likely, but 3 togeather...?
Doctorate, 9 years of university, published legal articles, taught at University level, have served as Judge Pro Tem for state Superior Court over 15 years. 2 other witnesses are University graduates. No one was drinking and we were all alert and observant. Tried to enlist police in the matter immediately.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I believe that the caliber of past witnesses, including pilots, military and airline pilots, doctors, etc. lends substantial credibility that there are unexplained sightings, hence UFO's. What we saw were no aircraft nor atmospheric events.
I am a trained trial attorney, University of California graduate with 30 plus years experience in determining truth from perception. I do not claim this to be a spacecraft, but only a sight that none of us can explain from our experiences. The prime object viewed was a structure. was illuminating colored lights, and remained in sight a substantial time.
