Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Spotted Mylar Balloon looking object revolving as it floated above Hollywood Freeway by Vermont Ave. exit. Traffic was at a halt and I had plenty of opportunity to watch. It seemed like a party balloon but was moving /revolving really slowly in clockwise rotation in what was a pretty good wind / breeze. Not sure which way wind was traveling. The "Balloon" was orange and black and appeared to have 3 or four glowing dots on one side that were distinctive from orange and black two tone body color. It just very slowly, in the strong breeze, seemed to rotate up towards the clouds.

It gets better! I got off the freeway and was stopped at light so I peered at the object spinning slowly up then I said to myself there must be something else up in the sky. I turned my head further up towards the silvery blue thin clould blanketed L.A. sky and then saw the glowing light flying in a straight line from west to east! As itwas flying I said "come on no way I'm seeing a Mexico City Style orb" to myself then it stopped moving straight and cut a 90 degree turn down towards the ground and kinda zig zaged for a few seconds then stopped in Place near or above clouds! The street light turned green, nobody honked and I moved to quickly park! and view I pulled my car into a McDonald's parking lot at Vermont around Santa Monica or Melrose and parked next too of all things a trailer filled with Horses. Wild! I backered my car up and was able to view both objects. My sunroof, which is huge, offered a great tinted view of light orb, foo fighter. The "Balloon" now stopped rotating and showed me the side with the three or four glowing dots as it moved slowly in a straight line up and away towards the north / clouds. When I turned back towards orb it had changed shape and position slightly more east and had become a white "I" shape standing tall against clouds. I watched both objects for about five minutes as the "balloon slowly faded and blink of eye disappeared way before clouds. And the white "I" stayed in a stationary position for a few minutes after Balloon had disappeared, then poof it was gone! Another interesting point was that the horses didn't seem to pleased, maybe the heat or traveling but they seemed in snyc with what was happening above, making some annoyed gruf sounds. Wild day in Hollywood!
