Posted: 7/20/2014
Location: Carlsbad, CA
Shape: Cross
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Palomar Airport; near collision of object with plane.

I work in a warehouse located in Southern California. Standard cloudless, blue sky.

I was looking out of my office window and watched a plane taking off from Palomar Airport, about 5 miles away.

In that plane's line of trajectory, I observed an object that appeared to fly directly into the path of that plane, but make a sudden 180 degree change in direction before impact.

As I watched, it disappeared in the blink of an eye.

The object was silver in color and larger than the plane in my field of view.

It appeared to turn, hover, then disappear.
