I was sitting on my patio drinking a cup of coffee when I saw a light in the sky, At first I thought it was a search light bouncing off of the clouds. the light did not move for about 3 or 4 minutes, so I became suspicious and took a look through my binoculars. I saw a disk shaped object, round on the bottom and top, with a light streaming from the top. I got my camera and took a picture of the object.
After about 20 seconds, the object went up and to the southwest and disappeared. There was no noise what so ever. Approximately 1 minute later, a helicopter flew over. The time was approximately 11:00pm Thursday night [3-26-09],and the location was east of San Diego. Note: the object is at the top of the pic, and to the right. It was brighter to the eye than it looks in the pic.
