Government cover up.
On October 1969, my Marine platoon was on a bivouac in the hills of Camp Pendleton, California. We noticed a bright light many miles away,; traveling south it stopped, as if it noticed us, at the same time. Within a second, it was over our heads, about 30 feet above us. The bright light went out and a green light came on and shined on us. The object was about 50 x 50 in size, it hovered quietly.
Then, about one minute later, it shot over the ocean and into the sky very fast. Then a group of jets flew over as if they were trying to follow the UFO.
The amazing part came in the morning when a General and his entourage came out and told us what we saw was a missile misfiring and not to talk about it. We knew then the government was trying to cover this up.
Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
