White Helicopter/UFO Seen over Carlsbad, California
UFO Depiction

Carlsbad, California - 07-18-13 I have always believed in UFOs based on simple mathematics/probabilities but until yesterday (07-18-13) had never seen anything unusual.

This does not include an "extreme dream/or actual event" that happened at home during the night 20 years ago that still haunts me to this day. Perhaps I'll share that story in the future.

I was quickly driving to my home in Carlsbad, California at approx. 1:30 pm on July 18th to meet family members that were impatiently waiting for me.

As I approached my neighborhood I noticed a large, white helicopter several hundred yards away circling around a shopping center (life flight copter?) and that is what got me to look up as I sped home.

I immediately noticed a classic, oblong disk shaped/tube shaped "object" above and behind the helicopter floating perfectly still and tilted at a slight angle as is often seen in UFO pictures.

It looked bright white via the bright sunshine reflecting on it, but may have been light metallic in color.

I was trying to drive and look at the same time and got a good look at it, but needed to be home as I was running late. I am frustrated with myself that I did not stop the car and take a cell phone picture as after further reflection, I realized that it was quite bizarre and was definitely NOT a plane, helicopter, balloon, lantern, etc.

It was relatively close and I could clearly see it. I thought that if I made it home just several blocks up the street that I could still see it from my house/vantage point, but I could not see it via the angle or it was gone(?).

Not the most exciting story, but for me it appeared to be "a real UFO" and I have looked at thousands of pictures and videos over the years while studying Ufology. I'm not very good at describing scale, but it was comparable to if you were to hold out a dime in your extended arm/hand, turn it side wards and about twice as thick as the dime would be a close approximation.

The helicopter was about the distance of 2-3 footballs fields away. For the locals here, it was just slightly north of La Costa Canyon High School.

Because of the helicopter attracting attention someone else must have seen this? I may call the Carlsbad Police to see if anyone else reported anything "unusual" above/near the helicopter.

I have not watched the local News to see if anyone else reported it as well. The last local sighting was the one in Santee a few months ago and this one looked very similar.
