Location: Santa Cruz, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 min
It was night and I saw large lights coming toward my house in Santa Cruz California. I was standing outside in my driveway when I saw them coming from the Monterey Bay/ocean area and heading in a northwest direction.

I believe it was the same craft reported on your site seen in San Jose that night. It came from the southeast (Monterey Bay) and was heading northwest. I also thought it was a plane going to the San Jose or SFO Airport until it flew over me. At that point I noticed it was going too slow to be an airplane, although my friend said "wow a stealth bomber!". There was no sound, it was very low, very large and moved slowly over us, over my house toward the Santa Cruz Mountains. Once over the mountains it would be in the San Jose area. There were very large unblinking lights on each tip that showed the shape of the craft as it flew overhead as a triangle. I wish I spent more time observing it but since my friend said "stealth bomber" that's what I thought it was. It was only later I realized a stealth bomber would probably be going much faster, be flying much higher, and make noise. As I noticed, the lights were so bright that they clearly revealed the shape as triangular. Time on this report is approximate.
