San Juan Capistrano, California - 12-18-13
Shape: Sphere - Duration: 3-5 minutes - A jet black circle hovering over the hill moved up and down, disappeared behind the hill, and shot into the sky.
I was driving towards my high school with my father and my brother in the car. We turned into the road, and I saw a motionless, jet-black circle (It didn't look spherical, it was a plain, black circle) in the sky just above the hills that surround my school. It looked at first like a balloon, and did not pay much attention to it.
But as we were approaching the drive through, I thought again, and looked back at it. I asked my brother if he saw it, but he was not paying much attention because it was early. Neither did my father, because he was driving. I then naturally thought to myself, "Hey, could that be a UFO?"
We pulled up to the driveway, and I left the car, heading in between the buildings of my school that blocked the hills; I wanted to go and take a better look at it. My brother went to his locker.
Looking between the buildings, I could still see it sitting motionless above the hill. It may have been a trick of the eye, but I think I saw it make small motions, moving a little up, then down left and right.
It still stayed in the general area, and it moved in these directions very slowly. I called my friend that had just arrived to school over to take a look. I told him that there was a UFO.
He walked over not really believing me, until he got between the buildings. His reaction: "Oh, yea... what is that?"
He seemed pleasantly surprised. I then pulled my other friend who had just arrived then to see it as well.
We began talking about it, wondering what it was, and debating on whether it was a balloon or something else. I brought up the point that balloons are not complete spheres (plus it was a circle, not a sphere, it seriously looked two dimensional).
And if it was a balloon, then how did it not reflect ANY light whatsoever? It was the blackest black I have ever seen in my life.
As we were talking, we noticed that it slowly started to descend behind the hill. As it disappeared, I turned my head to my friend in excitement, but then he pointed and said, "Whoa!"
He told me that after I had turned my head, he saw a streak of black shoot up into the sky.
