UFO Sighting Report


August, 21, 2013


morgan hill, California, United States


3 UFO"S seen around 9:15pm at 219 degrees so. west, about 40 degrees above horizon. Very distant and stationary, with a brighter UFO in the center, and all 3 aligned horizontally, but differing in brightness. Through 100 power binoculars, primary object had red light on top, with a wheel or dome like shape below the red beacon top. The lower dome had descending yellow/orange lights "ribs". Looked 3 dimensional; like a ferris wheel 30 miles up. The other 2 were too far back to make out, other than to detect the similar light pattern.

Date Reported:

Sighting Time: 

9:15 pm



No. of Witnesses: 



35 to 45 minutes

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.

Due to the distance these things were from us, it was hard to get anything close to a clear picture of this, but the height of it , as compared to the width, suggests it was not tubular in design, nor that we were looking at it sideways, but just seeing its outline, hanging there in space, still in the atmosphere.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Not likely, but 3 togeather...?

Witness Background

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.

Other Comments

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.
