Very Large UFO chased away with fighter jets numerous times

UFO Sighted in Southern California (Santa Clarita) On the early morning of Thursday, January 14th 2016 around the time of 0630 I was unwinding watching TV on the couch; I just finished working my usual night shift.

Now to quickly paint a picture; our house sits high up on the side of a small mountain; the back of our house faces east (facing the Los Angeles National Forest Mountain Line).

While watching TV I noticed a large object hovering still over the top of one of the mounts in the LA National Forest, the morning sky was just starting to light up with the sun rising in the east behind the object, but the sun hadn’t peaked over the mountain just yet. The object caught my attention since it was the only object in the sky; at first I thought this was only a cloud, however there wasn’t any other clouds in the sky. I took a couple photos and then sat back down on the couch continuing watching TV but still keeping an eye out the window when all of a sudden 5 or 10 minutes later the image moved a bit and had looked like it broke up showing other objects hovering below and to the sides of the larger object; that’s when I confirmed to myself its only a cloud since it had broke up a bit.. But then what happened next is when I realized it’s a UFO.., the object came together as one again and started to leave; it moved east away from where I was.

After the UFO left I noticed the morning sky filled with more then a dozen fighter jets.

About 1 hour later around 0730 the object repapered; the UFO was cloaked and appeared as a large cloud; next there were 2 fighter jets which flew over our house and headed east toward the UFO.. as the jets approached, the UFO started to leave and head east away from the incoming jets pursuing it; in the distance I noticed what looked like the first jet to plummet down (as if the jet was shoot down or it pursued a drone or something). The scale of how large the UFO was enormous, in the pictures you can tell that the size of the jets in comparison were tiny, this UFO dwarfed our jets, this was their mother ship as it's referred to or a floating city.

One hour later the object reappeared and headed west toward our house and then north and dropped down behind the mountain ridge. In the distance you could see jets flying all around in that direction. Further I saw another plan flying overhead, this was a radar plan, the plan with the large circle dome on the top of it.

There was a lot of activity over the Los Angeles National forest this morning; I called the news station and the LA National Ranger Station, but no one followed back up with me.

((NUFORC Note: The object in the photo seems to us to be a cloud. PD))
