I have had 3 sightings to date Peter this is my first one.Sorry it took so long though please know I have shared my sightings with other groups.

In 1990 I was co-managing a hotel in Garden grove ,Cal. It was a gloomy day in southern Cal. with low clouds and drizzle when in the mid afternoon I heard strange sounding thunder and lighting. I went outside amd thats when I saw "it"! I can't be exactly sure on the amount because it happened over 10 years ago but I believe there were "9" ,I saw nine glowing balls of light in the clouds. They were all in a gemomectric pattern equally spaced apart from each other. When a type of thunder sounded off these objects would begin to grow and get brighter. They also produced this strange loud electrical sound like a buzzing that would keep getting louder untill one ball kind of exploded. When this happened the ball that exploded sent a lazer like line of electricity at one of the other nine,that one would then do the same with perhaps one opposite it .This continued in a pin ball like fashion as all balls got hit with this lazer thing. Everytime one would recieve it's hit it grew in size and brightness.The balls fired the lazers so fast back and forth at each other it was hard to follow. When the thunder stopped or slowed so did light showthough it would start the next series of "zaps" 30 seconds or more later.

They seemed to generate their own energy after the initial kick start from the clouds. These balls never moved and them being in the clouds I never saw any more then bright glowing round lights in the low clouds.

I went inside our hotel and got my co-worker who was Chinese to see this for him self. On seeing the balls in the sky he ran back inside and tried to pull me in to. "this is very bad you must get in" I thought maybe he saw something like this in China so I asked him what it was but of course he had no idea.

I have researched many UFO books and have well surfed the internet and have found only two sighting that were a bit similar though not the same.This was very hard to put on paper ,you must have been there to understand how strange yet powerfull it all seemed. A ufo fight? A dimention opening up? A star wars experiment(over a hotel?) ((name deleted))
