Bright Dot Over California's Pacific Coast Highway

Bright Dot Over California's Pacific Coast Highway

Date: July 15, 1960

Location: Pacific Coast Highway

A bright dot high over the U.S. Pacific Coast Highway exhibiting rapid acceleration/deceleration and the ability to hover.

In the summer of 1960, when I was 8 years old, my father, mother and myself were driving North along the coast of California, dad driving, mom in passenger seat, me in back seat.

Mom asked, what is that?

Dad pulled over and we all got out.

I saw a bright dot high over the ocean which alternated between sitting still and darting to a new location.

I remember witnessing about 3 very rapid position changes, then very rapid acceleration upward out of sight.

When we got back in the car, I said Daddy, what was that?

My father, who was a serving military officer, replied we will never speak of this again, and we didn't.
