Simi Valley, California - 04-12-14
This object first appeared as a glowing light moving straight towards us at a fairly low altitude. It appeared to slow down almost straight above us as it made a slow turn toward the west.
It then accelerated straight up at an incredible speed. There was absolutely no sound and no flashing lights; just a bright glow.
The rate of speed, especially for its ascent, was the most astounding part of the experience. This was definitely not a plane or a helicopter. It was swift and silent.
I consider myself lucky to have chosen that moment to have a smoke and at first thought it was maybe an airplane. As it got closer I knew it was not, because the light was neither green nor red. It was also way too bright.
I thought maybe a helicopter, but even as it was directly above us there was not even a sound. I was struck with a perplexity and called my father out to see it.
He came in time to watch the light change direction and take off straight up until the once large bright light became so small neither one if us could see it.
The ascent lasted no more than 15 seconds as it vanished. Both my father and I feel very blessed to have seen such a sight.
