21 June 2013 low altitude aerial contact in triangle shape, shifting colors from port & starboard side with 0 noise(trained lookout)USN

I'm sure of what i saw and described it on the phone exactly.

This is my honest report on what i saw and will not reveal any personal info about myself.

On the 21st of june 2013 in el cajon, CA i was talking on the phone to someone outside smoking a cigarette and then i saw a bright white light over the hill come up abruptly then i noticed it was coming straight towards me in a residential district when it was flying low so i walked closer and interrupted the conversation to let the other person on the line know what i was seeing. The light got closer and closer and was completely silent and had 1 main light in the middle and when it was coming towards me i saw lights shift from port(left) to starboard(right) and back and forth. The lights changed colors and moved from both sides, port and starboard of the craft. I've been in the navy as a logistics specialist (LS) and am a trained lookout for surface and aerial contacts on a ship and have seen many lights at a distance of nautical miles in open sea and in other countries and have nev! er seen an aircraft anything like this. The person on the line was totally freaked out by what i was describing and i was totally interested in what was going on.

I would have been a lot more concerned if it stopped right over me, but instead it kept moving circling the city changing lights as if it appeared to be a plane at a distance but it was about 500 yards above me. I'm used to giving locations of contacts off the port bow, so i would say that if when i was looking at it, it came up at 00 degrees or my centerline and moved in a circle at my centerline then zig zagged slowly moving to my port side up and over slightly to the left of me moving 2, then 2.5, then 3, then 4 points off the port bow (as if i was locating it on the ship with MSC-Military Sealift Command type navigation as my ship was crewed as part navy and part MSC)(wont give name or country) and kept moving eventually out of sight. Then a low flying plane flew right over me about 5 mins after the event and ! i could clearly see the difference. Not to mention my phone so! unded like it was staticy like i was being listened to. I wouldn't be surprised because it was a non-secure line. The thing is we never see anything flying low at 2200 at night in a residential area as i go out a lot to smoke a cigarette.

I know that this is not that detailed, but it was very detailed on the phone.

My phone couldn't zoom in to take pics, but for whatever its worth i wanted to let people know i'm a credible veteran who was honorably discharged 2 months ago to go to college and i saw this right outside the house and didn't know what else to do but write it down. I just googled how to report ufo and here i am. A drone would have made noise, even if it were a static noise. We need full disclosure and we need it now more than ever with the protests around the world because we see all the lies and secrecy.

Very Respectfully, Anonymous naval veteran
