Shape: Disk
Duration:1 minute
A disk-like object viewed over Santa Monica, CA.

I was driving east on Wilshire Blvd. Between 14th Street and 26th Street, at about 130PM. I noticed an object (maybe 2000 feet up, just below the cloud ceiling) that appeared to be over Westwood (about a mile to the east). The object was clearly a disk. I cannot guess it's size. It was very shiny on one side (it seemed to be metallic). The other side seemed to be black and not reflecting any light. It was not stationary. Its movements were very erratic. Moving very short distances, in all directions. Going in and out of the clouds. Flipping from side to side. Enabling me to see both sides of the disc. I was able to watch it (as I was driving) for about a minute, maybe two. By the time I arrived at my destination and parked, it was gone.
