Location: Los Angeles, CA
Shape: Light
Duration:20 minutes
Red flashing object appeared in the Eastern direction gradually moved north-east, and suddenly disappeared.

Red object appeared in the Eastern Direction, and initially appeared to be stationary. it began to slowly move in the north-eastern direction, and began to pick up speed. object began to flicker 3 or 4 times and then suddenly disappeared. Object did not reappear in the sky. Duration of the event was approx. 20 minutes. In the night sky one can readily distinguish a plane, and this was not a plane. I consider myself to be very skeptical when it comes to events like this, and unfortunately can not come up with another explanation.
