|A UFO with 3 alternating red, and 3 white, lights flashing, floated across sky then vanished.
On 09/16/2014, at 14:24 local time, in Anaheim, California, I had gone out onto my 2nd floor apartment balcony. Just after exiting the front entry door, I looked up to check for any wasp nests under the overhang from the roofline edge.
At that moment, I immediately noticed an object hovering in the clear open sky, past the roof of the apartments, opposite my own. The object shape was sort of fuzzy and hard to make out, but it was silent, and flashed 3 red lights, then 3 white lights. The object looked close enough to have made a sound, if it had been a helicopter.
The object very slowly floated off to my right (in an Easterly direction), and got gradually farther away, but I could still clearly see the alternating lights flashing, red then white, red then white...
After about one minute of watching the object, a dragonfly insect flew close to where I stood on my balcony, and for a brief second distracted me from the object. When I looked back at where the object should have been, there was no lights or sign of the ufo anymore - as if it had 'blinked off' or simply just vanished.
I watched the sky for half a minute more, but there was nothing at all to seen in the blue, above me.
