Location: Murrieta, CA
|Appeared as a flying spider through binoculars. Traveling from west to east at estimated altitude of 10,000 ft at an airspeed of 400+. Several "legs" of different lengths projected outward from a center mass, but were rigid. Estimated span of object from end of leg to end of leg is 500 feet. I am am FAA licensed pilot and this is the strangest thing I have ever seen in the sky. About 5 minutes before the sighting, dogs in the neigborhood began howling and my Macaw began to screech.
