The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
Back in high school weekends were party times, some nights we used to go down to the beach manhattan avenue and hitch hike and meet girls going to party’s around the south bay beach area and spend the saturday nights out at party’s. this saturday night i was hanging out on the manhattan beach pier looking south towards palos verdes hillside and looking up in the sky above just off the coastline and noticed a bright star that was moving kind of slow, i was thinking it was a satellite but much brighter and closer to earth, then it stopped? then it shot at an amazing speed faster than any plane we have and it changed sharp angle directions “without any arc” like a plane would turn, it did this direction change about 4 or 5 times then shot out of sight and it was gone? i just stood there amazed and said to myself i just saw a ufo! and i knew then at such impossible speeds and direction change it couldn’t be a plane. it was pretty darn cool and haven’t seen anything like it since.
