I was driving to dump off a bunch of items like an old table and other furniture at a local shopping center dumpster..

I was driving on Clairemont dr heading south bound. It was about 9:30pm at night and Clairemont dr was pretty quite. I think I was the only person on the road at the time.

As I came around a bend in the road I saw a gold bright light... I did a double take cause I thought it was the police helicopter that normally is flying around my area.

I couldnt make out what the object was. I noticed no other lights and the police helicopter has two lights... red and green and I didnt see those. When I first saw the object I was looking about 200 yards to my right out of my trucks winshield.

as I got closer and realized that the object was not a helicopter I then thought it was an airplane but the sky was over cast and it would have been impossible to be an airplane flying that low.

I started to feel very nervous cause I couldnt make it out. All this happened so fast that I was unable to figure out what to do.

I continued driving and I kept glancing up at the object. It didnt move an inch. When I came right up on it I noticed it was about 3 telephone poles in height in the sky.

It wasnt very big, but it was bright like a like was hanging in the sky.

I lost sight of it as a drove by it. I slowed down and was trying to look at it out the back of my truck window but the furniture was in the way. I got a little further down the road and could see the spot where I saw the light over the furniture in the back of my truck and I didnt see it anymore. It was gone.

I decided to go ahead and continue to dump off the furinture and when I came back Clairemont drive I decided to go driving around the back streets where I saw the object and I came to the cayon rim and I noticed something flying around.

I thought for sure this time I was looking at a helicopter flying around La Jolla mountain. I was facing north at a dead end of a back street. I then noticed the supposed helicopter was making very sharp turns and speeding up and slowing down real swiftly.

I knew I wasnt looking at a helipcopter. It was something else.

I lost sight of this object and so I got back on Clairemont dr and continued toward my house heading north. I spotted the object again. I watched move around the sky.

It was covering a distance of 2-3miles in seconds as it went around in no given pattern.

It was flying low to the ground beneath the cloud cover. When I got close to home I made a left turn and I lost sight of the object for good. I told my wife when I got home. I went out side and smoked a few times throughout the night but I didnt see the object again.
