WHILE TAKING MY POLICE PARTNER TO HIS HOME IN THE SOUTH BAY, WE WERE DRIVING SOUTHBOUND ON INTERSTATE 5 NEAR IMPERIAL BEACH, CA., WHEN WE SAY A BRIGHT FAST MOVING ROUND WHITE OBJECT MOVING FROM EAST TO SOUTH WEST AT A HIGH RATE OF SPEED.

ON APRIL 1, 1999 , I WAS TAKING MY POLICE PARTNER TO HIS HOME IN THE SOUTHBAY CITY SUBURB OF SAN DIEGO CALLED IMPERIAL BEACH. WE WERE DRIVING SOUTHBOUND ON INTERSTATE FREEWAY 5 AND WERE NEARING IMPERIAL BEACH WHEN MY PARTNER SAW AND POINTED OUT TO ME A BRIGHT WHITE OBJECT IN THE SOUTH EASTERN SKY. IT WAS ABOUT A QUARTER SIZE WHITE OBJECT THAT WAS TRAVELING AT A HIGH RATE OF SPEED, TOWARDS THE SOUTH WEST AND SEEMED TO HOVER OUT OVER THE OCEAN FOR A LONG TIME. WHEN IT FINALLY STOPPED, IT WAS OUT OVER THE OCEAN, AND LOOKED A LITTLE BIT SMALLER IN SIZE, BUT JUST AS WHITE AND JUST AS BRIGHT. IT THEN MOVED UP IN THE SKY TO ABOUT A 45 DEGREE ANGLE FROM THE TERMINATOR OF THE EARTH FROM OUR VIEW. IT MOVED UP RAPIDLY AND THEN HEADED WEST AND UP AGAIN AND THEN DISAPPEARED. THE COLOR DIDN'T CHANGE.IT WAS NOT LIKE A KNOWN US HELO/JET
