Duration:3-4 secs
Four white lights zigzagging across Los Angeles.

I witnessed four separate white lights in the sky zigzagging from the Northwest to the Southeast (about 7.40 in the evening). All were headed in the exact same direction making a slight zigzag motion (each light’s pattern was slightly different than the others)as they crossed the sky.

Although I couldn’t give an exact altitude at which they were traveling, I can say they seemed a lot higher in the sky than the airliners stacked headed into LAX.

Their brightness was that of the other stars in the sky and remained consistent till I lost sight of them due to the light pollution here in the city.

As for their speed, they crossed the sky in about 3 seconds or so. No noise was associated from these lights either.

I tried to look up information about meteors that can make that pattern as they come in but could not find any.

The sighting occurred in the parking lot of the Farmers Market/Grove (3rd and Fairfax) here in Los Angeles.
