Duration:20-30 minutes
Red light over Camp Pendleton, California.

I'm not sure of the exact date or time, since I was in Marine boot camp, and we weren't allowed watches. While on night patrol our whole platoon was told to get down (hand signals of course). We were in a open field around 200 yards in circumference, the sky was clear.

While laying in the grass for about 15 minutes I started looking in the sky. This is when I noticed a solid red light. My first assumption was a satellite, since I had seen a few before until it jetted across the sky and stopped on a dime. When I say jetted it was faster than anything I've ever seen and the distance it traveled in the second it moved was incredible. The distance was about from Adhara star to the Procyon star for distance purposes only. After sitting there for about 2 to 3 minutes it moved again about the same distance in a different direction. After that I thought I was seeing things so I tapped my buddy next to me and pointed to the sky and whispered "see that red light?&quo! t; He acknowledged and I told him to watch it. About a minute later it moved again but a shorter distance this time. My buddies eyes were wide open in disbelief with a WTF whisper coming out of his mouth. As we watched the light moved a few more times, distances and speed that nothing from this Earth could accomplish. The last time it stopped it seemed to be right over us and then took off straight into the sky and disappeared. A few minutes after it was gone we were told to get up and continue our patrol. When we got back to camp me and my buddy talked about it and both concluded that it had to be a ufo. I've only told a few people about this for fear they wouldn't believe. Ever since that day I can honestly say I do believe we are not alone.
