UFO report 8/27/12 8:15PM Yucaipa, CANE part of sky, clear conditions, high visibility 75 F ground temp Object was first spotted at approximately 45 degrees from the horizon, maybe 8-9000 feet, was somewhat above local mountain peak. Object was bright orange solid light without blinking indicators. I noticed it and the first thought I had was that Mars was very big and bright in the sky. I pointed it out to my sister and we walked over to get a better look at it and realized it was moving slowly. The object moved slowly straight downward. At what looked to be about 4000 ft, still well above horizon, the light suddenly blinked out, I could almost make out the dark unlit shape for a second and then it disappeared. Thinking it to be a helicopter with a bright light, my sister and I were surprised when it disappeared, as no civilian aircraft would suddenly turn off all lights after dark and then disappear. Air Traffic is heavy in Southern California. I spend a lot of times outdoors and I can recognize everything and have seen helicopters of all types, a variety of military aircraft, dirigibles, small aircraft and even Air Force one once. This object was none of those. I had thought it was Mars and then maybe a helicopter with a very bright light. This s the fourth UFO I have seen in my life. The second in the past five years.
