Shape: Oval
Duration:20 seconds
An object flew across the face of Saddleback Mountain twice, and vanished in plain sight both times.

From a parking garage in Santa Ana, I saw what I thought was a small, white, private plane flying in front of the middle of Saddleback Mountain from north to south. The "plane" had no wings or tail. The distance of it was anywhere from 8 to 20 miles away.

Before the object reached the edge of the mountain, it vanished in plain sight. It did not turn, or bank, or rise, or fall, or slip behind a ridge. I continued watching to see if it would reappear, and a couple minutes later I saw it again.

This time it was in front of the north hump of Saddleback Mountain, flying north to south. Before it reached the edge, it once again vanished in plain sight.

I watched for 10 more minutes, but I didn't see it again. Both times that I saw it, I saw it for about 10 seconds before it vanished.
