My boyfriend and I were riding our bikes along the oceanfront heading east along the Santa Barbara coastline around 9pm when we stopped for a moment on the adjoining grass to talk, I was speaking to him when he first saw movement in the sky, he told me he saw a diamond/triangle shaped craft flying over us, I thought he was being funny and didn’t look up but then realized by the look on his face that he wasn’t joking. We had already witnessed two orange orbs in the same area about a month ago so I looked up and a few seconds later I saw one for myself except it was a “boomerang” shaped craft with 5 orange lights; one at the tip, one on each end and one on the center of each “arm” it was difficult to tell how high it was flying but I would guess approx. 3,000-4,000 feet, about as high as the local mountains. It was larger than an airplane; next to a full moon I would estimate it to be about a sixth of the size. It flew NW and disappeared into the clouds. I kept looking up into the sky when we both saw another (or the same, I’m not sure) object flying NE, then from the opposite direction one of the same size and shape came towards it, I thought they were going to collide but they instead seemed to merge into each other and become one larger object which then changed shape; the orange lights on both objects began to sort of swirl around then the craft(s) took on a double diamond shaped appearance before flying off in a NW direction.We then went back to our apartment about 7 blocks away; once there I witnessed another chevron or “boomerang” shaped object flying south through the sky from our front patio. At that point we decided to get our digital camera to try and record the objects and went back outside. I saw the chevron shaped object at least two other times, once flying north and then south. At this point we went outside to the street for a better view. A couple of minutes later I witnessed another chevron shaped object that appeared to be larger and flying lower than the others. It also had the orange lights on the bottom, more than the first, however this time the lights seemed to be moving in a very coordinated pattern, as I watched the lights seemed to swirl around each other in circles. There was absolutely no noise from any of these objects. Unfortunately our camera was unable to pick up the video we tried to record, however we’ve decided to take it with us when we go out riding now just in case. I will update if we see anything else.((NUFORC Note: I spoke with these witnesses, and they sounded to me to be quite sincere, and serious-minded. PD))
