San Clemente/Oceanside, California - 07-11-12

I was driving south on the 405 freeway from the town of San Juan Capistrano to my home in Oceanside. It was around 9:30 PM. I drive this frequently.

Between San Onofre Power Plant and Oceanside is a military base Camp Pendelton. I have observed military operations many times, and feel I can identify most of their vehicles.

The ocean was to my right, and there was average traffic for that time of night. The light over the ocean I first noticed as I passed the power plant.

It was so bright that it was distracting from my driving. I assumed I would pass it soon, but it stayed to my right as I continued driving. It reminded me of camera lights; the kind they use in movies. It was very white, bright.

I continued driving maybe another 10 minutes, and kept glancing to my right. I knew there was a look out up ahead nearing Oceanside. I couldn't take it anymore; I had to pull over and look.

I pulled into the look out. There was a family who was having car problems. Beside them, it was just me and my dog. There were no parking lot lights.

I stood there maybe 15 minutes just looking at it. Helicopters practice out there dropping supplies to ships. That was my first thought. I eliminated that as there where no flashing red lights, or movement.

Plus I couldn't see a ship. Maybe a oil derrick? No, not unless they built it in a day. It wasn't any kind of a ship or boat as there was zero reflection on the water.

The longer I looked, the more confused I got. I could barely see the horizon as there was fog that night. Once I could see the line, I could tell the light wasn't sitting on the ocean, but was above it.

I kept waiting for it to move and one time it jerked a little, but remained it place.

I would describe the light as a huge, bright square. I could only see the front, but it looked like it was divided evenly into four lights; like a 4 on dice.

Each light put out the same white color, but randomly fluttered. I wouldn't call it blinking. I finally had to get home so I don't know what happened with it.

I have a young family member who said she saw the same thing a few nights later. Hers were flying and there were 8. That was in San Clemente, at 11:30 pm. I tried to use my cell phone for a picture, but had no luck.
