Duration:2-3 minutes
a cigar shaped object with a light at the end seen in La Jolla, which made no noise, and was pursued by military jets.

As I was running on the U.C.S.D. campus at about 8:20 at night, my attention was drawn to the moon and the obgect I saw going beside it. It first appeared to me to be an airplane leaving behind a smog trail. However, I then noticed that the trail was not getting longer as the object moved significantly towards the ocean. Then I realized that it was not a trail at all, but rather a single object with a light in the front, wich I originally thought was an airplane. This could not have been a conventional aircraft first and foremost because of its size. The object would only be covered from my eyes' view if I would hold out a pen a few inches from my face. This is too large for any conventional aircraft, considering that the object was pretty high in the sky. It was also NOT making any noise. A few minuters after this object dissapeared in the westwardly direction, I saw 4 black fighter jets headed in the same direction (these were making plenty of noise) as well as another fighter jet following the first four about 30 seconds behind.
