Extreemly bright UFO "orb" over San Diego for over an hour, 8:00pm, February 12, 2009.My fiance and myself stood on the sand at Ocean Beach last night (February 12, 2009) for over and hour watching a large glowing orb (UFO) in the sky over the ocean. I watch the planes come and go out of San Diego almost every night and this extremely bright orb got my attention immediately. This isn't the first time I've seen something like this, but this was the closest one. It was extremely bright. So bright that I couldn't make out any detail and it looked kind of fuzzy with bright short streaks surrounding it. I first noticed it around 8pm or so, and watched it for over an hour come a bit closer, go out, move a bit up and down, horizontally, and in seemingly random directions. It would slowly go very dim, then extremely bright. This was in our atmosphere and not out in space. When a cloud would cover the UFO, the cloud appeared to be glowing from within, then the light would turn into a very dim pinpoint. When the fast moving cloud would move, it seemed the orb "knew" and would quickly turn bright again, just after the cloud had gone. I heard a military helicopter (and living in SD, I know what one sounds like) going toward the orb, then what sounded like a military fighter jet. The helicopter seemed to have turned its lights off when it got close the the orb, but I could still hear that it was there circling around. The jet seemed to have no lights on the entire time. I watched for as long as I could, but I was cold and went to my car. I would look at it once in a while to see if it was still there at it would have moved its position a little. Eventually it had disappeared. I did not see how it "took off" or if the light just went out. This orb was near the flight path of outgoing planes. I know they must have seen it.((NUFORC Note: Venus.
