I couldn't be the only one to report this. it's been about twelve years now and although I don't recall the date , I do however recall the incident vividly..
I was driving my wife at the time in our new jeep to a grand opening of the ikea store in Santa Ana , must have been 2002.
as I pulled into the lot, an attendent with directions flash lights was standing in the crosswalk motioning where to park. I thought it odd as he was focused into the southwestern sky above Costa Mesa. as was the crowd of people standing around him.
once parked we (the then wife) and I walked through the crosswalk toward the store and up the the attendent where I asked him what every one was stairing at. he pointed up at the clear sky to what I would describe as three round transparent metal reflective hovering objects , unknown size and distance but judging from the location of the marine layer that moves back in over this area in the afternoon. I'd say somewhere above five hundred feet high, the marine layer hadn't cast shadow yet but the objects would have been near where the low coastal cloud collects.
al the attendent said was "there were four, they went away and three returned"
I observed them for just a few moments before heading into the furnature store.
upon exiting the store the three objects remained in the exact location as they were when I went into the store. motionless.
my shopping experience, near an hour. but the lot attendent must have observed them and the missing counterpart for much longer.
