Shape: Chevron
Duration:2 minutes
Orange object hovering and then darting erratically like a hummingbird several times above tree line a long distance away.

Parked on side of road at Hunter Liggett waiting to photograph a moonrise. Noticed a dim orange object near horizon above tree line which didn't look like a star or a plane.

It suddenly darted down and made quick erratic movements like a hummingbird and then came back to "rest" quickly... that really got my interest! These movements lasted only a few seconds.

I tried to photograph it but by the time I got my camera out of the back of my SUV and gotten the exposure right for night shooting the UFO dropped down and to my left and appeared to go behind the tree line.
