Shape: Light
We live in Northern Californa in the small town of Recrest around 50 miles south of Eureka. My friend who was outside smoking a ciggarette called my husband and myself outside to take a look at something in the sky. This is what I and two wittness saw. It looked like the planet Venus except that it was many times brighter and bigger and started moving up and down and side to side and sometimes in a circular motion. It was apox. 6:50 pm.

I then told my husband to get our digital camera with tripod to try to take a picture/video but to no avail. My friend had a flash light and I ask him to flash it at the object, what he did was a series of three dots and three dashes. We all saw the object flash back. I then called my friend in southern California to ask her to go outside and see if she could see anything and thats when she told me to call you.

My friend has a compass watch and said the object/star was at a bearing 217 degrees in the sky.

When I went into the house to call Mr. Davenport I saw the object slowly move behind the redwood covered hills.

Sincerely, ((name deleted)) P.S. I did sit down and kept very still to make sure my eyes were focused on the object and not playing any tricks on me.
