NUFORC Sighting 12061

Occurred: 1979-01-01 20:00 Local - Approximate
Reported: 2000-02-19 00:00 Pacific
Duration: 15 sec.
No of observers: 1

Location: Redondo Beach, CA, USA

Shape: Disk
Characteristics: Lights on object

Low-altitude disk flying slowly; red lights around perimeter.

I saw a disk fly directly over me at an altitude of about 50 ft. and a speed of about 10-20 mph, travelling from west to east. It was about 10 ft. diameter, had a series of evenly spaced red lights around the perimeter, and made no sound. The object made no changes in speed or direction during the time that I could see it. I was around 9 at the time, and my memory of it is somewhat jumbled, but I am certain that this happened. It was a quiet night, and the sky was overcast. I thought at first that it was a helecopter, but it made no sound and was perfectly circular. I think I saw a circle on the bottom of it, but otherwise it was dark.
