1979 ��� I was sitting on a bench over looking the beach (waves breaking 10 feet in front of us)at Point Magu with two friends, one male and one female. Across the cove, maybe 200 feet away was a group of 10 to 12 people enjoying a camp fire on the beach. Suddenly we saw an object about a half mile to a mile out over the water, about 100 feet high. This was the classic flying saucer shape, with lights around the diameter of the craft. At first it just hovered there for about a minute and then a VERY bright light about 10 foot diameter shown on us for 30 seconds or so. The light went off, the craft flew at a high speed to the left - it moved what looked like about 1 mile in a blink of an eye, then to the right just as fast back in front of us, then flew up at about a 45 degree angle at an unbelievable speed, and was GONE. We looked at the group of people at the camp fire around the cove and they were yelling "it had the light on you"! They all ran to their cars and drove away very quickly! This craft made no sound, and moved in a stealth way. If we (humans) have this type of technology, all of us should know. Some of my friends that I have told this to think it was probably a military proto-type -- not a chance. Nothing we know of could move like this craft. To this day, my friend's wife (one of us three witnesses) refuses to talk about it with my friend and I, or anyone. I truly feel privileged to have witnessed this amazing event that was seen by at least 12 people.
