At approximately 5:40PM tonight (Friday 2-4-12) I was home with my daughter folding laundry and was about to head upstairs to put the clothes away when I was absolutely startled, because high above our pool table room windows I saw some incredible bright lights out in the sky. It was not completely dark yet, but more on the dusk side so I walked over to the door and peeked out the window to take another look as it did not appear to be an airplane. What I saw were these incredible bright, huge lights, bright and deep blue, and a bright almost pink red, the lights appeared almost bigger than the craft. The craft seemed to be very large and a disc shape. I would say it looked about half the size of the moon if I were to try and compare it to something. I think what startled me were the huge beautiful lights, then I realize no planes ever fly in this path, nor helicopters, the object also sat still without moving and then it moved to the left and back very ! quickly. I ran out the door onto our street and started to scream for my daughter to come outside (although she is young I wanted her to see this as well) as I turned the object was so bright barely moving and then it shot down toward earth, and when this thing came down it was if it were going thru a tunnel at the speed of light. I have no idea what happened but it did not look like it was in the midst of a crash, and I have no idea if it even landed, all I know is it shot down toward earth and that was the last I saw of it. It was absolutely unbelievable.

From where I was standing and where our house is located I can guess that this object was over the mountains and or close to if not over the ocean.

It was really the most unbelievable sight I have ever seen!! I am not one to go around talking about aliens or ufo’s but I can say without a shadow of a doubt that what I witnessed tonight was not a plane, not a helicopter, and not a balloon. The way this thing moved, how fast it moved, and the fact that it would move side to side and then sit still in the sky tells me it was without a doubt a ufo/unidentified flying object. Not to mention the size of this thing and the colorful huge lights that were surrounding this object.

I would love to know if anyone else out in Marin looked up in the sky tonight and witnessed something strange as I did?
