At the time of these sightings, I lived in Westminster, just north of Huntington Beach and east of the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station. At about 1:00 AM on 12/27/13, from my backyard, I was observing a star-like light, in the southwestern sky, through my 50x binoculars. I moved to my front yard for a better look. The light did not move, but flashed multiple colors, much like some stars do, but something kept me fixed on it, not convinced it was a star. I video recorded with my camcorder for awhile, then went back to my binoculars. Suddenly I observed it move a short distance north, then stop, then with lightning speed it flew west, leaving a blue flame-like trail, and disappeared. Within seconds, it reappeared, flew back to where it had moved to, then back to it’s original position. I decided to take a still picture of it with my camcorder to see if I could get more detail. I focused and zoomed in on it. As soon as I did, I saw an orange saucer appear to the left of the star-like light, immediately followed by a blue saucer, then a pink-red saucer. Different colored saucers lit up one by one to the left and about 3 to the right of the white light until there were about 12 total. I just stood watching – completely dumbstruck by what was happening. Then the saucers on the right started to turn off their light one by one. I had presence of mind to snap a picture before they all disappeared. These saucers were not in any formation, but scattered at different heights, but all were level. By the time I took the picture, they were tilted, as if they had moved. I ran to tell my husband and by the time I got back outside, they were no longer visible. I was really un-nerved by this. I am an avid sky watcher – every night, but I was so un-nerved by this event, it took me almost 3 weeks before I would look at the night sky. When I finally got up the nerve to do so, I went to the same spot I saw the star-like light on the 27th. There it was again, so I again decided to take a picture. This time, 5 or 6 saucers lit up one by one, but this time they were in a straight line. I tried snapping pics, but my hands shook too much to capture a good pic. Once again they turned off their lights one by one. The only good picture I have is the one from the 27th. Both times, I had the feeling that these saucers had been hovering for some time, before revealing themselves. I also think that they may have been observing the Naval Weapons Station. I reported the sighting on the 27th to another UFO site soon after it happened, but finally I decided I should report both my sightings to MUFON.
