Duration:15 minutes
Bright, bi-colored, stationary lights above clouds. Hundreds of witnesses.

Bright lights ABOVE CLOUDS in sky above the House of Blues on Sunset Blvd after concert. Hundreds of other witnesses. Lights were bright and being slightly diffused by clouds. Would grow dimmer as clouds moved, (i.e. NOT projected from below). Weather cool and overcast w/rain earlier that day. Heard no sound. Stationary lights in approximately the following formation: .. : . . Spanning roughly five degrees in sky (I measured one fist width at arms length), almost directly overhead, outer lights white, center two lights orange, roughly parallel w/Sunset Blvd. People were coming out and staring up overhead. Some even called friends on cellular phones asking them to go outside to look. Absolutely no movement, and we walked approximately a block to our car and the lights remained directly overhead, (so they must have been at very high altitude). Clouds gradually obscured until invisible. We drove quickly home, as it was my intent to photograph them from my home, (though they were invisible by then). I am an amateur astronomer and I can assure all that this was NOT any standard celestial phenomenon, (not stars, planets, etc.). These lights were several orders of magnitude brighter than any night sky objects, (except the moon). I have never seen or reported anything like this before. We were surprised to see nothing on the news in the following days.
