Last night on 08/12/2011 at around 0800 and 0915 hrs, I was watering the front lawn of my house and I saw a helicopter flying around the area, shining the area with its spot light like looking for something or someone. At first I through it was the Border Patrol Flying around looking for persons, but I saw them move toward town and pay no attention to them. The moon was bright as day last night, when something caught my eye and I looked up to the sky.

I saw this bright light kind of white blue light fly slow moving toward the northeast. To me this object looked like it was checking out our area moving slowly, but the funny thing is that there were no blinking lights like regular airplanes and not making any noise of any kind. I just looked at it for a while slowly moving over the sky like nothing to worry about I didn’t have a camera or a video camera to take a snap shot, but what can you expect . When I’m outside watering the lawn I don’t expect to be looking up to the sky. I’m watering my lawn.

Over to the south I saw the helicopter going in circles looking around the area and not making contact toward this object, it was kind of strange. This object slowly moved toward the northeast some were the area of the chocolate mountains area and vanishes up to the sky.

For the fifth time this year, I saw these objects flying past the Imperial Valley and they just past through our area and vanish. Very strange sightings! The next day 08/13/2011 my sister-in-law calls my wife and informs her that last night there were three helicopters flying over the city of El Centro, California, she said it looked strange that there were these helicopters flying over like looking for something.
