Location: Carlsbad, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:2 Minutes
Single object. Bright blue light flying to the left, bright red flying to the right. 2nd sighting over same spot as 12/11/09 sighting.

This is my second report of the same lights I saw on December 11th. Once again, I saw a bright blue light in the sky flying to my left. It would stop, fly back to the right, and turn a bright red. The light would occasionally dip, hover, rise back up again, and quickly fly off. It's main pattern seemed to be flying in circles over one particular spot near the horizon. I believe that it's possible someone is flying some sort of model plane or helicopter from a baseball field, which is under that part of sky I witnessed the lights flying above. This ballpark is near Poinsettia Ln and Ambrosia Rd in Carlsbad. My concern, if this is the case, is that the lights are extremely bright and too close to Palomar Airport. They are not the normal red and green navigation lights, which could confuse other pilots landing and taking off from the nearby airport. Even if this is a normal plane, which I doubt due to it's behavior in the sky, these lights were much brighter th! an a small plane would be from that same distance. This time I contacted local PD just to have it reported on a non-emergency line and the light descended shortly there after I ended my phone call. I do not believe an officer was able to see the lights in time.
