Duration:2-3 minutes
White/silver round balloon like object that behaved uncharacteristically of a balloon over SW Los Angeles by moving up and down.

I saw only one object that was silver in color and round or spherical in shape. It appeared to be a baloon at times but did not behave like one at other times. It stayed in one spot for awhile then moved East slowly. Then appeared to change altitude and hover before moving more East. Then it moved faster and stayed at the same elevation until it was several miles to the East of me. At this time it moved faster and higher and a little South. It went out of sight to the East of me and I was never sure that it really was a balloon. This report is to see if any one else saw it better than me and reported it. Thank you, 9(name deleted))
