Large UFO Flies Low Over Couple’s Home

Date: July 13, 1979

Location: Santa Clarita Valley, CA

It was one warm summer Friday around 10:00 p.m. in California’s Santa Clarita Valley, Located north of Los Angeles.

I was brushing the swimming pool with a long pole and attached brush so that the kids could swim the following day. The pole requires you reach up to push down against he walls of the pool. I was standing on a high platform next to the pool about 4' over the rest of the pool area.

As I reached to the upper end of the pole, I saw a craft approaching the house from the west and heading southeast direction. It was about one block away at a low altitude.

I knew right away that it was not a helicopter or plane. It seemed flatter and wider and with lights in a circumference of the main frontal area. I ran towards the house, about 60' away, and called my family to see it. Only my wife came out.

By that time, it was directly over our house and pool. It was approximately 75' to 100' above us. We stood along side of pool.

It made no sound whatsoever, and it was at a complete stop over us for about 40 seconds. The only motion was a slight wobble and when it moved downward at an angle. During that time, we were frozen in disbelief. It is a strange sensation knowing that what you are seeing is not supposed to be and very foreign.

The craft was about 75' to 100' or less in diameter. It had small porthole and lights around it in the upper dome section, it was solid, metallic and shiny.

There was a dome above it and attached to the body with no visible separation, as if it were molded as one solid craft. The under section was concave towards the center and had 2 rectangular shapes alongside each other and the length of the concave diameter.

The rectangular shapes was about 7' to 10' in width and as long as the craft’s concave underside center. I also noticed ski like devices on the front and on each side of the front leading edge window. What caught my attention was that the devices were not in the center or the center of gravity for the craft’s design but very forward.

The skis were S shaped with the top of the S facing forward. Upon the craft leaning in a downward motion we could see a window or cockpit like glass that was situated in the underside of the front leading edge. It was on the front lower edge of the round craft. The rectangular window was approximately 4' in height and possibly 12' to 15' in length.

There was a glow of soft orange and blue lights from the inside but we could not see anyone or any controls.

It remained at a forward and downward angle for about 10 seconds. We both had the sensation of being watched. As it was angled, I noticed that light was reflecting from the upper section that was not facing the swimming pool lights.

Thus, it seemed to generate light through the skin of the craft as the lights that first attracted me faced forward and were much lower than the upper section of the craft.

My wife and I did not say anything to each other during the experience but she kept saying:

Oh my God.

Over and over again. The craft then left slowly at 30 mph to 40 mph.

I jumped on a wall around our property to continue seeing it for at least 7 miles. I instructed my wife not to discuss it, to draw what she saw, and then we would compare drawings. They matched, although mine had more detail and accuracy.

My background include Group Propulsion Systems and later as an executive with several major computer companies.

What we saw was close, real, solid, and a beautifully designed craft.

I know from my aeronautical engineering background that mankind has no such technology.
