OBJECT MOVED IN A WAY THAT NOTHING CAN!IT APPEARED TO SPIN AND TUMBLE AT THE SAME TIME,BUT THE MOTION LOOKED LIKE "STOP ACTION",SO THAT THERE WAS NO IN=BETWEEN MOTION VISIBLE.THE OBJECT MOVED UP THRU THE CLOUDS,WHICH OPENNED TO MEET IT.I TOOK THREE PHOTOS AND MY FRIEND TOOK FOUR(WE WERE ON OUR WAY TO A TRADE SHOW).THIS LOCATION IS ABOUT 1/2 MILE SOUTH-EAST OF THE HUGHES AIRCRAFT RADAR RESEARCH LABS(DOPPLER RADAR!)I WOULD LIKE TO SEND YOU THE NEGATIVES.MY FRIEND HAS SINCE PASSED AWAY,BUT HIS WIFE STILL HAS HIS PHOTOS.MY WIFE WAS THE OTHER WITNESS,AND WILL SEND HER RECOLLECTIONS WITH THE PHOTOS.

WE WERE ON OUR WAY TO A TRADE SHOW AT ANAHEIM CONVENTION CENTER.I HAD A RENTED STORAGE SPACE AT THIS ADDRESS THAT I WANTED TO STOP AT BEFORE THE SHOW.AS I WAS OPENNING THE DOOR ,MY WIFE SAID"WHAT'S THAT?",TO WHICH OUR FRIEND REPLIED"YEAH,WHAT IS THAT?'.I TURNED AROUND AND THEY WERE LOOKING ALMOST STRAIGHT UP.IT WAS ABOUT TWENTY MINUTES BEFORE A RAIN STORM AND THE CLOUDS WERE VERY THICK AND DARK.JUST BELOW THE CLOUDS WAS THIS TETRAHEDERON(?) THAT SEEMED TO HAVE A LIGHT AT EACH POINT,BLUEGREEN,AND REDDISH WHITE.I CANNOT ACCURATELY DESCRIBE ITS MOTION,BECAUSE NOTHING MOVES THAT WAY NATURALLY.IT WAS LIKE TURNING CLOCK WISE AND TUMBLELING HEAD OVER HEELS AT THE SAME TIME,IN STOP ACTION.BY THIS I MEAN THAT IT WOULD BE HERE,THEN THE NEXT POSITION,THEN THE NEXT AND THE NEXT,WITHOUT SEEING THE IN-BETWEEN ROTATION. I SAID "HEY,GET THE CAMERAS!',WHICH WE DID AND WE BOTH CLICKED OFF SEVERAL SHOTS.IT ROTATED UP,THE CLOUDS OPENED,LIKE A UPSIDE DOWN ROSE,IT WENT UP AND THE CLOUD CLOSED BEHIND IT.AS YOU WILL SEE,WHEN WE BOTH GOT OUR PICTURES BACK,THEY LOOKED NOTHING LIKE WHAT THE NAKED EYE SAW!ITS AS IF YOU SEE THE INBETWEEN THAT THE EYE DIDN'T SEE.HOWEVER,HIS PHOTOS AND MINE WERE VERY SIMILAR IN APPEARANCE.IN THE BEST ONE OF MINE,YOU CAN SEE THE CLOUD OPENING.I WOULD LIKE COPIES OF ANY PRINTS,PLEASE.
