Subjects saw what they thought at first was the moon over the ocean off pacific coast highway at 4am near crystal cove they realized it was not the moon it was gray and had gassy swirling clouds around it as it hovered over the water it would get brighter with the gray swirling gassy clouds and then get dimmer then it would get brighter, but not as bright as before and then dim then it would get brighter, but once again not as bright as before it finally dimmed out altogether and was gone the subjects stopped the car and watched the event for 20 minutes on the side of the road. the subject was the wife of a test pilot and knew at once this was not an aircraft subject contacted the coast guard and they confirmed one of their cooks had also seen the moon sized gassy floating orb over the water, and had also seen it disappear.
