Orange balls of light near Camp Pendleton - fire dept says it's planes dropping night illuminaiton balls, drills, this was around 1995

This is just in response to all the Camp Pendleton related orange balls.

Around mid 1990's, I worked in Irvine and lived in San Clemente. I think I reported this a long time ago as well.

I was sitting in traffic going south on 5 fwy in San Juan Capistrano. There was a plane hovering over the freeway and orange light was coming through the windows.

I kept looking up while sitting in traffic and the plane was just sitting above the freeway. I could not see the shape of the plane because it was dark, and all I really noticed was orange light coming through the windows of the plane, or craft.

Then it was just gone.

When I turned through the bend at Dana Point, I saw orange glowing balls falling from the sky. I drove past my exit to the fire station in San Clemente near the border of the city and the military base. A fireman there said it was "night illumination drills."
