Bright ringed object seen tumbling soundlessly over Redondo Beach CA.

At about 7:00 PM local time I was travelling north on Esplanade avenue at Torrance blvd in Redondo Beach. I looked up to see a ringed object seemingly tumbling or darting in and out of cloud cover. I stopped at the corner of Esplanade and Topaz Street to look up and see the vehicle perform maneuvers for about 10 minutes. It appeared to be a solid object, with a ring of blue white light around the outside. Occasionally some small strobes were visible as it tumbled and moved back and forth laterally. It appeared to be somewhere over Esplanade and Pacific Coast Highway. There was no sound whatsoever and the object rotated and tumbled about for several minutes. It was observed by dozens of other witnesses. Eventually I left and the object was last seen descending toward the Hollywood Riviera area of Redondo Beach.
