While driving into downtown Laguna Beach, I saw 5-7 lights in a rough line moving quickly from the ocean to land. They then stopped abruptly, hovered for maybe 15-30 seconds and appeared to disappear into the marine layer.

I was driving into downtown Laguna Beach tonight on CA route 133 (Laguna Canyone Road), going roughly in a westerly-southwesterly direction. When I was approximately in the vicinity of the Sawdust Festival, I saw about a half dozen fairly bright white/yellowish lights moving from the ocean to the land in the general proximity of downtown. They appeared to be moving rapidly and maintained a rough, but not very straight line. They appeared to stop roughly over the downtown area. I turned left on Forest Ave. and began looking for a spot to stop so I could get a better look at this phenomenon. It was a bit tricky trying to observe the lights while trying not to get into an accident.

The first spot I could find to pull over was on Third Street just before Park Avenue. By that time, however, only two or three of the lights were visible and those appeared to be ascending vertically into the marine layer and faded away within 10 seconds. I did not hear any sound accompanying these lights but I was in my car with the windows rolled up and radio on until I stopped. I then drove home, which took maybe another minute. I looked at my watch at about this time and it said 9:12.

One other note: I am virtually certain a number of other people saw these same lights. I believe I observed at least several people in other cars and on sidewalks looking at the objects.

I am guessing these lights might have been composed of a string of lights of some sort tied to helium baloons, or perhaps military helicopters, or even extraterestial although I’m fully aware most unusual lights can be explained.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (ELFIS.net), organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
