Location: N. Hollywood, CA
Shape: Cone
Duration:10 minutes
Bright orange light with some kind of object on top, moving slowly across the sky with no sound at all.

At approximately 3:30 am, I was outside with one of my staff members loading her truck up to go to a job. She suddenly told me to look up in the sky. I saw an odd orange-ish light coming almost overhead from the north, but didn’t have my glasses on so I couldn’t really make it out. I ran in to get my glasses. It was still overhead when I got back and we could both make out that there was a sort of cone-shape on top of the bright light. There were no flashing lights and the light was not the normal color of a plane. We are very near an airport and see jet lights constantly. This craft was not going towards the airport. It moved very slowly and with NO SOUND at all! We watched it for at least 10 minutes. As it moved south, it seemed to stop and hover over the city (Los Angeles) for a minute or two before it continued south. We only stopped watching when it was out of sight. This happened only 20 minutes ago! It was not a helicopter. We have those overhead constantly too – police and news copters every day. The light was bright orange enough for my staffer to comment that it looked like a flaming piece of paper floating through the air.

I am a small business owner and my staffer is a professional who has worked for me for over 2 years. We are both female - 40'2 & 50's.
