Two lighted objects dancing in the sky above Los Angeles on Oct. 31, 2008

Do not really know where to start so I will just begin at where we were. At the beach on Halloween smoking cigarettes. I went back to the house to get a sweatshirt and when I came back my brother was yelling at me telling me to hurry up. When I meet up with him, he and my other friend were watching these two objects in the sky. They were pretty far away, looked like they were above Los Angeles. They did not move like planes, or helicopters. The two objects were dancing in the sky, like kites, or Devil Rays in the ocean. It was too spectacular so I ran to the strand to get another witness. A Hispanic man wearing a cowboy hat walking with his son of about 8 years old, an Asian man, black woman and a group of people walking down the strand all saw it. The man and his child, watched with me for what seemed to be about 5-8 minutes.

Shortly after we began watching, we saw a stream of light stretch across the sky. It looked like a shooting star, but we figured it was too much of a coincidence and it probably was another UFO entering into the atmosphere. We never saw it join up with the other two objects. We watched the two dancing, lighted objects for about 10 minutes, until they were gone.

When it all was happening, they were shaped like kites. Not really sure of how many lights there were, but they changed from bright white, and the occasional single red light. From our view, they looked like they would dive down to the ground and float back up above the clouds. They never traveled in straight lines, more random directions, again they looked like they were dancing or playing with each other. This is my story and this morning I have looked on the net to see if they were other witnesses of the event. Have yet to find any report of it. This is surprising to be because it was over Los Angeles which has one of the busiest air traffic area in the country. It did not appear that any helicopters were following the lighted objects.
