Carmel, CA

Sighted on Sunday 28. October 2012
Reported on
Shape: Oval | Duration: 5 minutes
Source:

cylinder/oval emitting light, should have been back lit by sun, later simply disappearedGlancing out kitchen window at approximately 0940, 11/28/12, easterly direction toward Santa Lucia mountains. At elevation of approximately 25 degrees, very bright oval/cylindrical object (approx. size of 2 to 3 book type match heads held at arm's length) at great distance out over Santa Lucias, should have been back lit which caught attention. Sun’s reflection could not be on side observed as it was to back and left of object hence light was not reflection, but apparently originating from object. Moving very slowly from left to right for less than 5 minutes and then simply, disappeared, vanished, gone. Observed by both wife and self.(This is same brilliance/non-reflection as was another sighting in same direction some 2 years ago, likewise in morning light which should have been only back lit. Similar, prior sighting drifted towards me, maintain a dull yellow/tan bright color then morphed into a geometric “spiral” of 3 arms of 3 tendrils each with right angle bends. I had not heretofore reported this prior sighting but have clearly remembered it since…. Similar in front lighting with sun behind, same general direction.)
