Duration:4 minutes
Huge rectangular object seen over north San Diego.

Yesterday, Sunday, around 1:30 PM I was traveling east on highway 52, about 2 miles east of the 805 in San Diego and happened to look to the north. Through my driver’s side window I observed a huge object in the sky. I’d estimate it was at about 5,000 feet and moving slowly in a northerly direction. The amazing thing was how large it was and also the shape of it.

It was rectangular, just a little bit wider than high. It seemed to have some kind of a band running around the center of it but was hard to make out the detail. I took two quick shots with my cell phone camera. The first one was off as I was driving and just trying to point and shoot. The second one I got a shot of the object as it was almost touching the northern horizon and appeared pretty small by this time. The shocking thing was the size and shape of it. I was initially, I’d estimate, 4 or 5 miles from it and it was easily over 300 feet wide and 200 feet tall. The color seemed to be a dull battleship grey.
