I was traveling north by automobile when I observed an object traveling in a southernly direction at a very slow rate of speed. I stopped and stayed in my car while it continued to descend until it was hidden from my view behind a 3 or 4 story building. It was a large oval shape. The underside was completely illuminated in a white light with several flashing white lights.

I was traveling north by automobile in central Palm Springs on El Segundo St. between the convention center and the Spa Hotel & Casino on November 30, 1999 at about 5:45 pm. I observed a large oval object in the sky coming towards me in a southwesterly direction. I stopped and stayed in my car while I observed it. I had no competition from street lights since Palm Springs has few of them. It was at a low altitude and was descending. I continued to watch it until it was hidden from my view behind a 3 or 4 story building. The underside was completely illuminated in soft white light. Several flashing white lights were located around the perimeter. I continued to observe it for about 3 minutes. It did not resemble a blimp, but I did try to contact the Palm Springs Airport but was unable to navigate through the menus to reach a human to confirm if a blimp had been in the area.
