Witness report: My wife and I noticed this last night, December 11th 2013 over Encinitas CA. it was around 8pm as we were walking to dinner. We first noticed the object because we were trying to find stars to look at. My first instinct was this is a normal commercial jetliner. After about ten seconds that quickly changed and I grabbed my camera phone. The object was entirely stationary for at least twenty minutes. We stood there for about ten looking at it and spent another ten walking to dinner. The object was still in the sky before we walked into the restaurant, although I cant confirm if it moved or not since my field of view changed so much from walking. The object appeared circular and had three roaring lights that were moving rather quickly. The lights were magenta and a light green and occasionally transitioned into adding a yellow light into the rotating motion. The even crazier part was about 10 degrees away was a solid dark black circular object. I first brushed this off as a weather balloon or hot air balloon but it was pitch black out and didnt over at all. Furthermore the apparent distant between the two objects didnt seem to change either. Unfortunately I couldnt get the black object on video. My wife was very scared and contemplative directly after. She wanted to get out of the area immediately. I was reassuring here that there is a logic answer to what we saw. But Im not sure if there is at this point. Ive never seen anything close to what we saw.
