|Young girl and male friend were sitting in a car facing south, when they saw two lights in the sky. There were two solid, white lights, one on each side of the object, and a flashing red light in the middle. They had the impression that the light was approaching their position slowly.
As the object drew closer to them, it appeared to move slightly to the viewers' left, then to the right.
The viewers felt that the object, at its closest, was perhaps 200 yards "in the air."
The young woman rolled down her car window to see if she could hear anything, and detected a high-pitched squeal.
The object was diamond shaped, and it appeared to have some kind of light in back. Also, they could perceive visually that the object was not just "beams" (?) because it appeared to have a solid mass to it.
The craft passed directly over their car, and it was heading to the northeast. When they looked behind themselves approximately 5-10 seconds after it passed overhead, they could no longer see the object.
The object appeared to the observers to be as big as a clenched fist at arm's length!
She saw a UFO before, probably in 1990.
I gave the caller our address. She has already drawn the object they saw. She is on the internet. I told her about the sighting in Monterey, CA, just 9 hours earlier.
