UFO Sightings Near Costa Mesa, California

I got the following report and videos from Dave. He had contacted us via email and wanted to share what he saw and recorded. 

Here is his report and the videos, which I turned into 1 video, he shared with us. (Videos used with permission.) 
 -Start Report-

Dave: I came across your Google sightings map and had some things to contribute. I had a sighting and possible encounter you might say with 6 individual unidentified craft in the Costa Mesa area. A couple days later….in roughly the same area…..I saw one of the same craft again from a different location.

TM: Yes, we would love to hear it, add it to our database, and watch the videos.

Dave: Couple of things I want to mention that are important. Number one you’ll notice some of the craft blinking similarly to how the navigation lights on commercial aircraft blink. However, they are in the wrong cadence, they are the wrong colors, and a couple of the craft were not blinking and then began to blink which immediately rules them out as being possible navigation lights. Also, while seeing these in person it was immediately obvious that they were not airplanes or helicopters although it’s not as easy to discern in the video.
If you zoom in on the craft you can more clearly see that they are not any sort of normal craft.  These craft are not all consistently moving and for various points of time, several are simply hovering in one spot. These were not anything normal….not even close.

TM: Still Frame from video 1 of one of the objects. I have zoomed it in and tried to enhance it.

Dave: The following day I was actually able to film another one of these exact craft in a different part of the sky…..much closer to me than they were during this video.  You can zoom in much easier and see that there are two lights on the flat bottom of this craft, and then the other lights seem to be emanating from the sides and toward the top of the craft. Something else you’ll notice, if you zoom in on the video I have attached, is that there are smaller blinking lights flying erratic patterns around several of these craft. Something like a 10th of the size of the main objects. The craft I recorded the following day appears to have two of these smaller blinking lights erratically flying around it…..which is obviously very important since we don’t have anything we know of that does that.

TM: Still frame from video 2. I have zoomed it in and enhanced it.

Dave: The last couple of things I’ll say about this video is that I never saw any of these objects either approach from any distance to arrive at where they were or leave in any particular direction to where they could be observed moving off. Every one of them essentially appeared and disappeared close to or right at the location they were filmed. 
Lastly, I was very shaken by this encounter…..and I learned that apparently, I can handle having strange experiences with giant hairy monsters in the forest much better than encountering unknown craft flying around in the sky in front of me lol. With that said…. I recorded close to 8 minutes of video of this encounter and this is just a piece of it.

TM: Here are the 2 videos which I edited into 1 video. I have also muted some of the sounds due to profanity.

Sighting date: May of 2023

-End report-

A big thanks to Dave for sharing his sightings and videos with us. This took place in 2023 but I don't know the exact date. I have messaged Dave to find out and will update the post once I get the additional info.
