Duration: 1 minute
Flashing fireball slowly moving over Mission Valley around 9:36 pm on Monday night 8/15/2016. Looked like the flash of fire wold repeat slowly moving each time the engines fired. Probably 6-10 times a second leaving a visible separate fire ball trail. Then it would go black for a few seconds and fire off 6-10 more times. It lasted for 30-60 seconds. I was speaking on my cell phone on my apartment balcony with my girlfriend looking out over Mission Valley when I noticed it. At first I thought it was fireworks but it was moving slowly in a Northeastern direction. I told my girlfriend who laughed at me and then I told her I needed to hang up the phone to video it. By the time I hit record the ufo had been gone for maybe 5-0 seconds. I just missed it.
