Large, ring shaped with inner ring. seen over los angeles

One object was observed. It was large and in the shape of a ring. It had an inner ring as well. The ring was made up of large circles. It had the resemblence to a cell under a microscope (ie membrane with a nucleus) It had no distiguishable color It was hovering a few thousand feet above myself and my friend. It was slowly rotating. It was not lit at all. Though it was night it could be seen because it was illuminated by the moon. At first it seemed like it could be a formation of parachutists however it would be odd for parachutists to be jumping at night. The object spun slowly for a few minutes and then proceded to move east quickly. It wasn't too fast though, it moved about as fast as a plane from a long distance away. At one point while hovering an airplane passed by it however the airplane was much higher in alititude. It passed behind the object and was ecclipsed by it for a moment. The observers are college students.
