Reported: 2/24/2013 5:50:09 AM 05:50
Posted: 2/28/2013
Location: Redondo Beach, CA
Shape: Formation
Duration:4 minutes
Several colored orbs emitting orbs moving/changing into different symmetrical shapes while in flight

7:45-7:49 pm moving east from the west (from the ocean) in redondo beach/Torrance, 7-8 multi colored orb like objects (moving in formation) performing different symmetrical formations while all moving somewhat counter clockwise and at one point lining up directly inline like a perfect stick or pencil then moving to another symmetrical shape (a right angle square).

There was a lot of open space between each orb even though they moved together. Each orb was surrounded by 2 spinning orbs moving counter clockwise around the main orb which at a certain point only one surrounding orb would be visible then both would be visible at a certain apex of spin.

This was freaky, I live right in the air traffic zone of LAX and I saw this thing clear as day and close to the ground at roughly 200-500 feet and it was massive. It seemed to be trailing a plane that was flying at a much higher altitude, while other planes overhead and in the area (one roughly 10-15 miles behind it) diverted back towards LAX. I personally saw 3 large passenger jets turn back withing 5 minutes of this sighting.

Between 7:50 pm and 8:11 pm there was zero air traffic in one of the busiest international airports, airspace.
