Object over Altadena witnessed by 2

Looking northward , I observed a black object slowly floating across the sky in a northward direction , over Altadena , very close to JPL . After watching it for approximately 20 seconds , it dramatically flattened out to a near-perfect arch . It was then when my fiance' joined me . We immediately observed the object emit an arching light from just above the leading edge , (the sun had set entirely within the past hour of our observation , solar reflection was improbable ).The object continued to change shape ; similar to a large plastic trash bag . As it approached the the ridge of the mountains , to our surprise , it disappeared behind the mountains , indicating it's extreme size . This is the third time in the last three weeks , we've seen these peculiar 'floaters' and they've always been observed near the western ridge of the San Gabriel Mountains
