|Sliver and Red Spheres Over Long Beach California
I was down at the beach in Long Beach, CA flying a kite. The wind was blowing out of the WSW so we were looking ENE when a spherical silver object flying at a high altitude (higher than the planes) from the North to the Southern sky and then stopped and hovered for a few minutes.
After a minute or so we noticed another sphere that was hovering in the sky just north of the first object. This object was spherical as well but gave off a redish reflection. The silver one then moved north and the red one moved NW at which point they faded away. Over the next hour about 5 more objects appeared over the bluffs from the NNE and flew into the corona of the sun, SW, where we couldn't see them anymore. I called LBPD who refered me to Marina Police, who transfered me to Local Lifeguards, who then came out but by that time they were gone. That call was made at 17:11. I called the FSS that told me over LB at 17:00 the wind aloft was out of NW at 15 knots for 3000 ft and out of the NNE at 10 knots for 5000 ft.
