Location: Long Beach, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 mins
On Dec 25th , 2004 I was heading east on stearns going towards cal state long beach on my way home for christmas dinner.

As I made a right turn onto stearns , I looked to my left side and I saw a triangular object in the sky. It seem to be the same object I had seen maybe two years earlier on studebaker rd in long beach around 12 midnight. Ever since the first sighting ive been keeping my eyes open.

As I made the turn I saw the UFO and it was flying low and was extremely quiet/ hovering over some homes, some 40 feet in the air maybe higher. As I was heading east on stearns the object was parrallel to me and was heading west. I noticed there were no cars around, so i slammed on my brakes turned off my radio and rolled down the window. I heard no sound coming from the object and since there was no traffic I made a quick U turn. As soon as i made the U turn (now heading west) I was trying to intersect it to make sure it was the same object i had seen before but as I hit clark st. The object made a quick 80 to 90 degree turn and just disappeared. My vision was blocked by some trees and as I was on the corner of stearns and clark the object just vanished. It seemed like it knew what i was doing. This area is near the long beach airport and I know for a fact that this is not a place to do testing of military planes. Ive never called the l.b airport or authorities since I know they wont do anything about it but it was a triangular shaped object, black, it had some lights on each corner of the triangle and was extremely silent. This happen to be the second time i saw this object in the same area. The first time i saw this object was about 2002-2003 at around midnight Iam not to certain of the date. I was staring into the nights sky and was driving south on studebaker when all of a sudden i noticed the object dropping altitude rapidly. I figured it was a plane since the airport of long beach is so close. As the object dropped i slowed down.Since there was no traffic i completely stopped my car in the middle of the road and another vehicle traveling beside me was also slowed down but kept on going. I a stared at the object it must of been close enough to me that i could of gotten out of my car and hit it with a baseball. As I sat in my car with the windows down and looking up at the object which had to be hovering was going so slow and there was NO sound whatsoever coming out of this object. I could clearly see the details of the triangular object. It had lights on the tips of the triangle and was extremely silent.As it kept heading towards me by the time it hovered over my car for a brief couple of seconds it made a 45 degree turn and started going towards the residential homes. Thats when i made the same turn in my car trying to follow it but as I made the turn the object took off over the homes at a very very fast speed. Something a plane cant do. As i made the turn west I hit a school with a tall fence which I jumped out of my car and climbed the fence so i could get a better close view of it,I also did it just to make sure i wasnt going crazy but all i saw was the back end of object hovering over the homes at a high rate of speed and it vanished. Once again i didnt call the authorities since i didnt want to cause any problems for myself.
