sighting: I'm not sure what I saw was a UFO. It was a clear night without clouds.I was in my car and had just come around the north side of the lake when I saw the sky light up behind the mountains in front of me. At first I thought it was the moon low on the horizon behind the mountains. The light got more intense and I pulled of the road and got out of the car to watch. The light continued to intensify and within a couple of minutes the top of a huge globe appeared over the mountains. It continued to slowly rise. In comparison to the full moon it was at least ten times that size. The only way to describe it's appearance is to remind you of the photos we've all seen of a hydrogen bomb exploding. It had definite areas of various colors with the predominant being greens and blues with some yellow. In shape it was a flattened globe but not quite oval. It lit the entire area with a greenish light. There were no other cars in the area which at the time I saw this wasn't unusual as the area was then orange groves and large expanses of volcanic rock bordering the lake. After watching for about 5 or 6 mintutes I just wanted to be out of the area. I drove off and stopped a mile or so down the road and got out to look back. All I could see at that time was the moon and the same eerie glow as before but not the globe. If what I saw was an atmospheric trick I'd like to know what it was exactly.
