UFO Sighting Report


May, 1969


Woodland Hills, California, United States


Dropping friend off at his home after day at college, we got out of car and immediately noticed a large metallic saucer shaped object erratically hovering in the sky under the just risen full moon. It made no sound at all, and had no lights however the moon light reflected off it and it showed up distinctely. After it hovered in a jerkily pendulum like motion for a few minutes, it abruptly stopped, shuddered, and went straight up at an unfathomable speed and dissapeared from sight; leaving the air full of static and scaring the hell out of us.

Date Reported:

4/9/2012 3:02:49 PM

Sighting Time: 

8:30 PM



No. of Witnesses: 



2-3 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

It was what one might call a stereotypical "flying saucer". A brownish-metallic color, saucer shaped, with a small dome on top with apparent port holes. It also appeared to have a small stubby antenna on the dome. It was totally noiseless and had no lights, but the moon reflected brightly off of it.

Size of Object(s)

Approximately 10" wide by 4" high relative. I guessed a size about the size of a Medium school bus actual.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

I figured it to be about 300 yards away by maybe 200 yards high

Description of Area / Surroundings

An urban area to the north and rural mountains to the south. The object was just over the urban part. Rocketdyne test plant was a few miles away, Probably a coincidence, my friends father happened to be a senior scientist at Litton Ind. and I got the impression that he had witnessed something similar before. (he refused to talk about it.)

Full Description & Details

This location at the time bordered a rural area (the end of Kelvin Ave. at Wells Dr.) The object appeared directly to the east directly under the full moon. There was little doubt that it was trying to be stealthy for we would not have noticed it if it weren't illuminated. After a couple of minutes of observation, it almost seemed that it realized we were watching and that's when it took off. Needless to say, this sighting was so vivid and unearthly, my friend ran to his house and hid under a blanket for two days, and to this day refuses to discuss this event.

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


Witness Background

I've worked as a computer technician for over 25 years. I have a BS degree, and spent six years in the US Marine Corps where I was trained as an electronics specialist on A-4 skyhawks. I was stationed at MCAS El Toro, and am very familiar with things that normally travel in our atmosphere.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I've always had an open mind and felt that there was enough corroborating evidence to make it possible. Afterwards, there is nothing that would ever convince me otherwise as to the existence of UFO's. To all you skeptics and government liars, "you weren't there, pal."

Other Comments

I also have witnessed some glowing white silent globular lights crossing the sky with my wife back in the 1980's. They were also silent and erratic and were heading toward Edwards AFB. My main question of course, is what are they and what are they doing here?
