Old LA Sighting Revealed
Note - I commonly get requests from people asking if they should bother reporting older UFO events. The answer is the National UFO Reporting Center or MUFON. Past sighting events are often like key pieces in a puzzle...they can sometimes make or break important data and can corroborate the sightings of others. Such substantiaion can reassure eyewitnesses who may have been living in fear and denial for years over what they have seen. Here is a perfect example of an important older sighting which has just now appeared on the UFO Updates list:

I wish to share an experience my wife and I had in late 1980's. It was one warm summer Friday around 10:00 PM in the evening in California's Santa Clarita Valley. 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. I was standing on a high platform next to the pool and about 4 feet over the rest of the pool area. As I brushed, I saw a craft approaching the house from the West and heading South East. It was about one block away. I knew right away that it was not a helicopter or plane. It seemed flatter and with lights in a circumference of the main body.
I ran towards the house 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 75-100 feet above us. 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. The craft was about 100 feet in diameter. It had small porthole and lights around it, was metallic and shiny. There was a dome above it and attached to the body. The under section had two rectangular shapes the length of the diameter. It rectangular shape was about 7-10 feet in width and as along as the craft. I also noticed ski like devices on the front and on each side of the window described in the following paragraph. The skis were like S shaped with the top of the S facing forward but with more angles that I cannot paint.
Upon bending in a downward motion we could see a window or cockpit like glass. It was on the lower edge of the round craft. The window was approximately 4 feet in height and 12-15 feet in length. There was a reflection of soft orange and blue lights from the inside but we could not see anyone. It remained bent over for about 10 seconds. It was obvious we were 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 or from the skin of the craft as the lights that first attracted me faced forward and 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 30-40 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.
I am providing a secondary E-mail to avoid having lots of E-mail sent to my wife's primary E-mail. We will be pleased to respond to serious correspondence on the subject.
We are not only firmly convinced of the existence of interplanetary travels but also that the government has to hiding fact from the public. There is no way, that we can be the sole observers. I encourage all Americans to band together and utilize whatever legal recourse is available to force disclosure.
What we saw was close, real, solid and a designed beautiful craft. I know from my aeronautical engineering background that mankind has no such technology.
