Series of lights above Monterey Bay near Santa Cruz, Calif.

Series of tightly-spaced blue-green and red-amber lights hovering over the Monterey Bay/Pacific Ocean, approximately 9 miles south-west of Santa Cruz, CA.

Very clear conditions, not a cloud in the sky.

Not a star, definitely not an airplane (though we regularly see north- southbound airliners. ...) When viewed through binoculars the lights appeared to be quickly moving (spinning?) from left to right.

This is the same general area where telescoping red and white lights appeared about a month earlier. In both cases, lights disappeared about about an hour.

((NUFORC Note: Curiouslly, witness indicates that the date of the incident is approximate. He reports on March 14, but indicates that the date of March 12 is approximate. We do not understand. PD))
