Sept. 3rd 2012/9:45 P.M. - While walking a friend to her car, I over heard a guy say something about the lights being back, we looked and noticed them right away.I knew it wasn't an airplane or helicopter. This was downtown Encinitas, CA. we were facing Southeast. We watched the lights for about five minutes as I was saying good by. The object was star size. I walked to my car drove a short distance south and grabed by binoculars and parked on PCH facing south. For twent minutes i watched the UFO maintian the same position,with the three orange lights (Triangler)fading somewhat in and out, but the most beautiful two Violet lights never blinked or went out. I could almost see an outline of the craft, maybe circular but very fuzy. The colors of the lights were only visable with the binoculars.After about twenty minutes, i decided to head home a few minles south. After about 10 minutes of driving, I noticed I couldnt see the lights/object anymore.I was pretty excited to see it, I saw an UFO Easter Day in Laguna Beach, CA back in 2008(?), but that was a completely different shaped object.
