Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The object was much like a stealth B2 Bomber. you couldnt see it when it flattened out, but a slight manouver and you could see it well. A grey color, at the distance i saw it, i could only guess the size in length, im thinking....maybe 16-20 feet in length. from one end to the other. The best way to describe the shape is more like a planet with a ring around it. It wasnt all round, or completely oval, it had round top, and round bottom like a ball, and the only thing that would make it close to oval was the wings or whatever except it looked like it went all the way around the "ball". There were many storm clouds around so the sky was dull overcast, so i couldnt tell you if it was silver or grey, dull, or shiny. it appeared dull and grey.
Size of Object(s)
From the distance i viewed it, i could probably squish it with...1-1/2 to 2 inches fingers apart. (thumb to index). Im guessing it was somewhere 16-20 feet in length and maybe 10-15 feet top to bottom.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Yorba Linda, CA. Lots of residential, but the area i was in, there is a riverbed with miles of plants, trees, no houses except 3 or 4.. its more of a Rural area. River bed is sand/dirt.
Full Description & Details
Its been storming here for a couple days now, non stop rain, and lightning. Sometimes I'll take the dogs outside so they can handle their buisness. There is a Bench swing that I have set up under some cover. While sitting there looking up at the sky at the clouds and lightning, I saw something a little lighter in color move in and out of the clouds, it was all in a period of i guess 10 seconds. It was hard to judge the speed because of how it went in and out of the clouds, sometimes you would see it here, and then move in the direction to lead your eyes, and then boom, it would appear somewhere around the area you were looking at. It never stopped completely but would almost seem to pause a little bit in the movment, it eventually went into the clouds and never revealed itself to me again. At least not anymore. The time was about 740pm, I went back inside at 752pm.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
there was no way it was a star, planet, moon, bird, or cloud. it was not a blimp, not a satellite, it was an aircraft of some kind. The only man made thing it resembled is something the Airforce created a long time ago that looked exactly like a typical "UFO" . its featured in an old Air Force ROTC book of mine. That is the only thing that I have ever seen that looked like it. And the Airforce to my knowledge does not fly that aircraft.
I spent 4 years in the US Army under the 160th SOAR located at ft. Campbell, KY. I served as a crewchief on UH60's as well as modified versions of the UH60. I have college training completed in the area of Auto Mechanics and Computer Programming. I am Currently an Auto Mechanic, and Tattoo Artist.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I know many things or have studied many things on UFO's. I have studied in the Majestic Twelve documents, and various military/nasa programs regarding, space, and ufo activities. Some abduction stories such as Travis Walton and others.
I am always sceptical. This is my first sighting. I dont believe every UFO is made from another planet, I believe that it is always a possibility that someone can create a craft that looks "ET". The movments of the object, speed of the object, are things that distinguish important caracteristics.
