Shimmering daylight orb casually traveled in a north-west direction near the Hollywood Bowl in December 2000

While looking out of a 3rd-floor window (near the Capitol Records-building), me and my co-worker saw a strange, daylight orb moving slowly in a North-Westernly direction near the hills around the Hollywood Bowl (where Highland Avenue meets the 101 Freeway); it probably was traveling at 3rd-floor height. From a mile away, it looked to be about a size somewhere between a large seagull and the front-end of a compact-car. It had an amazing brilliance--shimmering like a white diamond that was being spun in all directions (though it had a distinct round-shape, as an outer-"shell," that was almost transparent). It moved slowly and steadily but occasionally seemed to "down-shift" (veering slightly off it's otherwise straight-trajectory as if "studying" the surrounding area). It seemed to be intelligently guided (with spinning internal-parts) and did not resemble those metallic party-balloons (that occasionally float around Hollywood). I've seen this thing before, in the same general-area, since around 1998: Sometimes it was high-up near the clouds too (and appeared drab-gray in color before the sun came up).
