A California witness driving southbound along Harbor Blvd. toward the 405 Freeway near the Santa Ana and Costa Mesa area on April 5, 2012, reports watching a diamond-shaped object hovering in the sky that emitted a humming noise, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
“At this time I saw what appeared to be a diamond-shaped vehicle in the eastern sky approximately one mile from my location,” the witness stated. “While I was driving I noticed the vehicle hovering, so I thought it was a helicopter, but then it did not have the aviation lights. Also, it was much too big to be a helicopter.”
The witness eventually pulled over for a better look.
“At this time the vehicle tilted on its side and then I was able to see it was in the shape of a diamond, or actually two diamonds connected in the middle. At first I thought it was a hoax, but this vehicle was much too sophisticated to be a toy and very large. It made a humming noise that I could hear from approximately a mile away. Several people in the parking lot became spectators with me as we all watched in awe.”
The witness described the object’s actions.
“The vehicle at that time proceeded to fly/hover/glide higher in altitude and in a northeast direction. I felt at that time it was in the Orange County Airport flight path, so it should have shown up on their radar. Also at that time, the craft emmitted four brighter than the sun lights, or energy sources when it tilted.”
The witness is confident that there were multiple witnesses to the object.
“I am very confident I was not the only person that was watching this because of the size and duration of the incident. I know for a fact there are witnesses at the gas station, Stater Bros, and possibly more that were driving in a 2-4 square mile of the craft.”
