    Hello Cliff,
    I saw what could only be described as a UFO, come out of a large Cumulus cloud, and execute a sharp 90 degree right hand turn into a neighboring cloud bank, all in the space of no more than 1 1/2 seconds. This was in broad daylight, around 1:00 PM, in 1998 or 1999, to the best of my recollection. It occurred in Walnut Creek, Ca., an East San Francisco Bay Area city, about 25 miles east of S.F. It was extremely shiny, like polished chrome or aluminum, had no wings or in fact any thing on the outside that I could see, and no apparent windows. It looked like a rectangular box, with the front part “Slash cut” from top to bottom, for a streamlined effect. Even if I had had a camera at hand I couldn’t have taken a picture, it was only visible for a second and a half as it emerged from the cloud and did an immediate hard right, which took it back into the cloud formation. I am not given to hallucinations, and was under the influence of nothing. I do not know what it was, but I do know that it was not any kind of known aircraft. It was also silent, from where I observed it, at perhaps 1500-2000′ elevation.

      People ask why there aren’t more pictures of UFOs. What they don’t realize is how brief a time most people have to react, and even if you do, the last thing on most people’s minds is to search for a camera. They want to keep their eyes on what they are seeing. Thanks for posting your account though. Have you submitted it to MUFON or any of those type of places?

        Actually, I think most people in the course of the day (or night) seldom take time to look up! I never did submit this, or another sighting I had to any agency, although I thought about it quite a bit. I’ve learned that there are a majority of people that are vnot ready to hear this sort of thing, evidently they can’t wrap their minds around it. Myself, I know what I saw, although I don’t what it was, I do know what it wasn’t; it was NOT a conventional aircraft, whether one of “ours”, or one of “Theirs”. It was totally bemusing, and left me with more questions than answers!
