Duration:about 10 minutes
Friend and I were driving down the highway...moderate traffic. I noticed the aircraft first, it was hoovering over the freeway about 300-400 feet.. It was not so much a circle, but it had a solid line of red lights on the back of it. It had 4 bright white lights in the front with one brighter then the other 3. We pulled off at the next exit and came back around, by this time it was heading south pretty fast. The time it took for us to catch up to it, it was already gone. No moutain ranges so we would have seen it flying away but it was gone in less then 4 seconds. I don't know what we saw butt it couldn't have been military because Camp Pendelton was about 15 minutes North of us. The object went South, down the coast.
