UFO spotted over Newport Beach suburb of Corona del Mar, CA at 19:00 Jan. 2, 2007 by 2 witnesses

It was dark as I was driving with my 17 year old daughter inside my apartment complex. The car was facing in the direction of the Pacific Ocean (I live a mile inland) when I noticed a slow moving object with square or rectangular lights low in the sky appearing above the area between Pacific Coast Highway and San Joaquin Hills Drive over Corona del Mar (a suburb of Newport Beach, just south). I could not ascertain how far away the object was but it seemed close. It was moving slowly and silently southward.

We were so shocked that I circled around and parked the car where we could get a better look. It continued to move slowly and then seemed to go a little higher in the sky as it approached Newport Coast. I reported this to the Newport Beach Police.
